repoquery suggests there are 50-odd source packages requiring FontForge. I
don't know how to do this "properly", but as a local test (on F14) I will
build and install rawhide's FF and do this loop

1. yumdownloader --source font.src.rpm
2. rpm -i font.src.rpm
3. rpmbuild -bb pkg.spec

That sounds like something I can leave until cooked, which means it can be
done as regularly as required.

I assume that rebuilding other people's packages is a job for a
provenpackager, so I'll leave that to someone else when we know what the
damage is.
