Thanks all for allowing to submit new packages with dead oflb source
URL. I have used oflb foundry for those 5 packages[1]. I have also
added the same as comment in spec and also mentioned that "no FTBFS
bugs for this package please".

As usual, can anyone please help to review those packages? Hope
someone will help to fix long time pending
blocker:F11-new-font-rules(rh#477044).  I also like to mention this is
my voluntary work to fix Jon Stanely's packages.
