As a fix for this:

The following symbolic link was added to xorg-x11-font-utils:

lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 12 Aug 18 23:08 /usr/share/fonts/X11 -> ../X11/fonts

This causes fontconfig to search the full X11 hierarchy whereas before it only
searched the Type1 and TTF subdirs.

This "fix" has triggered:

and I suspect other issues will crop up as well.

Can some font experts weigh in on how to properly solve the first issue
without triggering the second?
