Weird....seems to be there....

Ok....even weirder...I just executed the same command in the same font dir and it works now.
I hate this. I used to like computers because the were reliable, predictable -- they didn't change their
behavior based on what day it is or whatever....This isn't the logical behavior I'd expect from an, x86...

Now I just have to figure out the rest of might be helpful if the manpage referenced on "fc-cache" :
__vendorversion__ FC-CACHE(1)
"fontconfig" actually existed. Somehow it didn't get installed on my system. Looks like the font config package
went out a bit hurriedly as the forgot to replace __vendorversion__ with a real version, as well.

Is that it though? I just run that and xft should pick up the new fonts? I assume I have to reload it or
restart it?...Thanks ....for getting me through the weird library problem....I ran some general verify scripts that looked for
missing non-local related files and if it found them, try to restore them, but I got a few errors on restores -- of course the
script did't list out the package it was processing on one rpm where it ran out of input data...weird..
