Hi Jonathan,

thanks for submitting this patch.

Overall it looks good, but I don't think we should reference the fonts
under $JRE_LIB_FONTS/ in the OpenJDK version of fontconfig.properties
(at least not until IBM will not also contribute the corresponding
fonts :)

I would also find it helpful to keep a reworked version of the comment:

  27 # Minimal version for AIX using the standard Latin Type1 Fonts from the
  28 # package X11.fnt.iso_T1. These fonts are installed by default into
  29 # "/usr/lpp/X11/lib/X11/fonts/Type1" and sym-linked to

which mentions which AIX packages provide the other referenced font files.

Thank you and best regards,
