It's not the missing fontforge I'm worried about, it's the incompatible
fontforge that creates unusable fonts. In that case I'd rather see wine
skip the fonts/ directory and don't create/install any fonts.

A quick font test before 'make' installs the fonts would help here
(given that this would do 'make' itself before installing the fonts).
