Installing the `steam` package on a fresh Arch system causes it to have missing text: the login screen and top-bar menu do not have any text.
The reason is that the `steam` package uses the liberation font, but does not declare a dependency on it so it fails to display the text when the font is missing. Installing the `ttf-liberation` package manually fixes the issue.
The `steam` package should declare an explicit dependency on the `ttf-liberation` package.

Additional info:
* package version(s):
* config and/or log files etc.
* link to upstream bug report, if any

Steps to reproduce:
1. Remove `ttf-liberation`
2. Start steam: there is no text at all on the login screen
