Hi Deri and Branden,

Thanks for your help and sorry that i'm so dumb when it comes
to fonts.

Ah.  That reminds me that for one of the presentations i gave,
i needed cyrillic letters because i wanted to include a significant
number of Bulgarian names into the slides created with groff.
Back then, i ended up manually installing a cyrillic font to make
that work.  Now my impression is that it would probably have been
a better idea to include URW fonts into our groff port in the first
place: font/devpdf/U-TR appears to include cyrillic letters, unless
i'm misunderstanding something.

So paying better attention right away might have saved me some
extra work.

Since the logs are rather large, i'm not appending them to emails,
but you can now inspect them here:

The logs in the first directory were generated by building directly
from git, the ones in the second directory using the "dest" tarball
generated in the first plus the ports framework.

In the ports build, i also set


(see config.log.txt) but 4_build.txt ends up with

  BuildFoundries: warning: line 69: 
  The path(s) used for searching:

anyway and does not create U-TR and friends.
