Since no further discussion has taken place regarding this PKGBUILD and the
fact that I've updated it to properly use the updated features in makepkg.
I propose that this request be closed and denied, as mentioned earlier in
my email 19 days ago, that the fonts are part of the macbuntu project and
thus does not constitute a 'pirated source'.
