Hello Guix!

In the package-definition of fontconfig, the default font is currently 
set to font-dejavu. I was wondering if we could change it to 
font-gnu-freefont, for following reasons:

[1] Provides multiple formats (ttf, otf and woff).
[2] Is a GNU package.

Thoughts?

Regards,
RG.

Does it have as good of a glyph coverage as font-dejavu?  Is it as
pleasing to the eye?  I'm not against the change, but we'd have to
review if it's equivalent to deja-vu.

Thanks,

Maxim
