When I upgraded xorg-fonts-encodings to 1.0.4-2 from 1.0.4-1, freetype always says

"Freetype couldn't find encoding 'jisx0208.1983-0' for (fontpath)"

in /var/log/Xorg.0.log and Japanese characters are not displayed with those fonts.

So I downgraded xorg-fonts-encodings to 1.0.4-1, the problem has resolved.

Because of this, I think 1.0.4-2 has a bug.

This problem is also resolved by this way.

# rm /usr/share/fonts/encodings/encodings.dir /usr/share/fonts/encodings/large/encodings.dir
# mkfontdir -n -e /usr/share/fonts/encodings/
# mkfontdir -n -e /usr/share/fonts/encodings/large

Additional info:
* package version(s)
xorg-fonts-encodings 1.0.4-2

* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
Upgrade to 1.0.4-2
This task depends upon

Hm. Can you check what is different in both packages? Acording to the commit log is was a simple rebuild.

I compared all contain files in two versions, and found 1.0.4-2 's encodings.dir is sorted.
I don't know why but this does affect freetype.

Fun bug... the encodings files are generated before installation and both the compressed and non-compressed versions exist. The non-compressed versions do not get installed so the encodings.dir file is wrong... Having it sorted put the non-compressed entry for jisx0208.1983-0 before the compressed entry causing this issue.
