That appears to have been the case.  I'm getting this same failure with the
clisp package and Times-Italic.  Once again, removing everything in
/var/cache/fontconfig and executing the urw-fonts %post script line by line
results in ps2pdf working normally in the build root.  When I first entered the
build root, there were 4 cache files in /var/cache/fontconfig.  After rerunning
the fc-cache line, there are 5 cache files: the same 4 as before, plus this


And sure enough, that is the only one of the 5 that has urw-fonts names in it.

I admire all of the effort that was put into hiding errors that occur in the
%post script, but that effort unfortunately throws away the information needed
to figure out what is going on here.  Could that be undone, please?
