Too bad, as that is the real problem,

Core fonts are basically under-maintained with few people willing to
invest the time to make them sort-of work. If you have an interest in
them you can drive this work on the fonts SIG list because otherwise
you may wait a long time for someone else to do it.


Isn't the solution for this problem (missing fonts.dir / fonts.scale) as simple as adding a single guideline that font packages which add a symlink under /etc/X11/fontpath.d MUST ship a pre-generated fonts.dir and fonts.scale, and no try to generate these using scriptlets?

Hans
