Additional info:
* package version(s) 2.32-2
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
This task depends upon

What do you mean by 'shouldn't' ? Is it because of the license? Because noone needs support for these weird languages? Because you dont need support for these languages? Why shouldnt they be packaged together?
edit: I see, you mean those alphabets are already included in the ttf sources.

Because support for Latin, Greek and Cyrillic is provided by both DejaVu and DejaVu-LGC.
If you need all the scripts, you need DejaVu; if you only need Latin, Greek and Cyrillic, you need DejaVu-LGC.
IMO DejaVu-LGC isn't very useful since the files are only 20 or 25% lighter than DejaVu. It could be packaged separately in Community or in AUR.
