Hey Thanks.  It threw out some font errors on startup but still displayed 
it just fine ANAICT.  I may not have all the fonts gnome wants, running 
kde here.  I just looked around in smart, but didn't see a fixing package 
right off hand.  If yelp is to use '/apps/yelp/variable_font' 
and '/apps/yelp/fixed_font', then it should have been made a package 
dependency.  But that's a different horse considering that it apparently 
worked just fine.  Since there is a leading '/', methinks it is an error 
in yelp.  There is no apps dir on the root of the filesystem...

Cheers, Gene
