Cyrillic X11 bitmap fonts from CYR-RFX project

CYR-RFX started as a collection of cyrillic fonts for X-Window “CYR-RFX” stands for “CYRillic Raster Fonts for X”. Now it includes several cyrillic encodings and two latin ones both with Euro sign.

These fonts are modified mainly with cyrillics added versions of standard X-Window fonts from misc/ and 75dpi/.

The fonts included are all *iso8859-1 from misc/, and most important 75dpi/ ones lu LucidaSans, lut LucidaSansTypewriter, tim Times, helv Helvetica and cour Courier.

Unlike the standard CYR-RFX’ hierarchical install, this port installs all fonts for the same encoding into a single directory, with combined fonts.aliases and the new fonts.dir. The default encoding is KOI8-O – seemingly the most complete of the Cyrillic encodings, compatible for most intents and purposes with KOI8-R and KOI8-U.
