Hi all,

I prepared IcedTea6 (HEAD) patch which fixes font configuration files
handling in RHELs (5, 6). In the original version of patched class, both
 major and minor OS version ("5.6" for example) is read from
/etc/redhat-release and then this string is used during searching for
font configuration file. It means that each RHEL subversion needs their
own font configuration file, which is not needed at this moment (ie 6.0
and 6.1 configuration is the same).

hg diff containing patch + changes is stored in an attachment.

Here's ChangeLog entry:

2011-06-09  Pavel Tisnovsky  <ptisnovs at>

        * Added new patch
        * patches/fonts-rhel-version.patch:
        Patch which ensures, that only one fontconfig file
        will be needed on particular RHEL version
        (ie. only one file for RHEL 6.0, RHEL 6.1 and RHEL 6.2)

Can anybody please review this patch?

Thank you in advance,
