Karanbir and I are solving this issue right now ... we should have a fix
later that will work for CentOS users (I hope).

Just for the record, the upstream provider knows of the issue, which is
that the file that becomes /usr/share/man/man5/fonts-conf.5.gz is not
the same between the i386 build and the x86_64 build ... and they have
this (private) bugzilla concerning that same problem with s390 and


Whatever they did do, they did not build their RPMS for i386 and x86_64
from the published SRPM.

As I said, hopefully we will have a patch that works later today for
this issue.
