I just looked at Fedora's xfig packaging
(https://src.fedoraproject.org/cgit/rpms/xfig.git), and the two most
recent commits fix issues with the urw fonts. So maybe Cygwin's xfig
needs something similar.
I might do that although these patches look extra hairy. But, reading
the commit messages I start to wonder if it's not the URW font package
that needs fixing (there might still be a need to patch some things in
xfig)? I'd not want to fl<y in some patches that don't actually fix the
problem, but just shove it further out.
What a mess!
There's a comment just yesterday at
suggesting that there will be some Fedora changes in the urw font
package coming this week. So let's wait for the dust to settle, and
then I hope we can just copy whatever solution Fedora comes up with.
