On any real end-user system: The suggested dependency is always satisfied
multiple times, no behavior change happens.

On minimal system with only installed X server: Firefox (and other apps) starts
with (some ugly?) font instead of silently refusing to start. Also one random
font package gets installed in such case.

Feel free to close the bug if the suggested change makes it worse.
