I meant in my RPM packages. :-)
I looked at the font suggested by D Richard Felker III (Nimbus Sans) and it's
quite nice. Here's a quote from that thread in mplayer-users:

Yes, Nimbus Sans (n019003l.pfb) or Nimbus Sans Narrow (n019043l.pfb)
from the URW fonts collection (included with modern ghostscript) looks
very nice and is basically a clone of Helvetica (same thing Arial is
cloned from, but Arial is a bad/ugly clone, IMO :).
So if you want to include that font, it's fine by me. Shall I send it to
your private address or will you get it yourself from ghostscript?
