Pete,

Thanks for your kind reply. I do have the libart_lgpl installed for
some other reasons not specific to GNUstep so maybe this is why I have
the Helvetica font situation. My boss says he wants GNUstep with X
Windows on the Mac because he refuses to rely on Apple because Apple's
GUI is not open source. He is quite hyper about open source so much so
I think he dreams of open soure :)
