Hello,

Two of my packages are TeX fonts (tetex-font-kerkis and 
tetex-font-cm-lgc), which contain .pfb files (postscript type 1 from 
what I could find out).

My questions are:
- Should I place the .pfb files   ( e.g.  
  /usr/share/texmf/fonts/type1/kerkis/Kerkis-Bold.pfb)
  in /usr/share/fonts/kerkis/ and symlink them to their old (original) 
  place or the reverse.
- What about the other TeX relevant files?  Should I do something with 
  them or are they indifferent to the rest of the system.

If there is an example TeX font package switched to the new format, it 
is not obvious from the package names.

Please advise.

Thanks,

-- Sarantis
