I posted the RH7.3 & RH8 to sf.net. I intended to make them available
once all distributions would be compiled/uploaded, but since there's
demand for them, go to

For 20050930, I removed some lines from the opengl patch as they were
already included, and the context of the stabs one changed a bit.
Anything else?

I generate that file by installing the latest fontforge
(http://fontforge.sf.net), untarring Wine in a temp dir, running
./configure && make -C libs && make -C tools && make -C fonts, then
tarring the output fonts in fonts/. It's because fontforge is not (yet?)
part of the packages available on a stock RH/FC install, so instead of
simply not having the fonts, I compile them once and then include the
resulting files in the binary packages via the spec file. The fonts
sometimes change from release to release, so usually it's best to use
the matching one, but they still should be valid fonts, so any version
is probably better than no version (especially for marlett.ttf).
