oh kewl, i'll have to check that out...  strangly enough, i tried again a
few hours later (after not doing any changes) and it went through, but
complained about being unable to create ~/GNUstep/Library/Fonts/Cache
... i looked and ~/G/L/F/Cache was a binary file w/ executable
permissions...  i removed this file and re-ran font_catcher and it all
worked fine since then...  i never looked to see if i could use TrueType
fonts, but the program ran and I prefer Helvetica for GNUstep apps anyway,
so i didn't care! : ^ )

but, i'll upgrade XF86 tonite and see what other good that will do! (i'm
currently using 4.0.2 if i didn't mention that already)...
