DejaVu fonts (Was: Ethiopean)

FWIW, yesterday I setup LANG=am_ET.UTF-8 in /etc/sysconfig/i18n and
rebooted. Sugar was not even able to start (I am using the latest
stable image). Pure X server starts ok. There were errors during the
boot process as well (some services reported "FAILED" startup). If
anyone is interested, I could provide more details.

So I had to fallback to en_US.UTF-8. It seems it will take some
preparation to get to the stage when we could actually perform real
(not fake) test of the Ethiopian keyboard input in Ethiopian locale.
