Yea, this is a problem.
For example font-misc-misc 1.0.0 was installed into
/usr/lib/X11/fonts/misc and new version of font-misc-misc 1.1.0 is
installed into /usr/share/fonts/X11/misc.
Same for other fonts, /usr/lib/X11/fonts/ -> /usr/share/fonts/X11/...
Seems some applications have problem to find fonts in new directory.
For example "cast -c eterm" doesn't help.
We should fix somewhere that directory paths.
For example in fontconfig'S BUILD we add /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/ and
/usr/lib/X11/fonts/ but none /usr/share/fonts/X11/.
