Fedora website has a few patches to add but latest fontforge has most of them already.
Fedora fontforge-20110222-multilib.patch was applied to configure, however, this patch puts the fix in the file configure.in so that the next time you use autoconf to update configure, the fix is included.

    I would say that definitely a multilib patch that messes with configure ought to be held off on, and the problem may go away with the new configure system.

    FontForge’s current configure system is at end of life, surely. It's in a terrible state. I'm using modern autoconf and automake -- it will be much nicer.

     
  • Postponed to give Barry more time for making the new build system.

  • OK, Barry moved from Mercurial patch queues to GitHub.
    Patch applied.
