I'm going to remove the unneeded dependency on xorg-fonts-alias package
from various font packages where it doesn't belong.

It only provides alias files for few Xorg fonts. I'm still thinking
about dropping the xorg-fonts-alias package. I'd prefer to put its
alias files into the corresponding
xorg-fonts-{100dpi,75dpi,cyrillic,misc} packages to avoid confusion and
drop it then.

In a 2nd step I'll make libfontenc depend on xorg-fonts-encodings as
stated in Xorg gitlab repo and will cleanup if something depends on
the encodings package.

Are there other font related tasks pen
