Well, yes, I knew about that. Trouble is, apt never tells me where it's
installing files. Guess I'll have to do this it the hard way:

find / -name [font name]

once I get a list of all the fonts I've installed via apt, that is, and
figure out exactly which fonts were included inside the .deb package(s)
and, and... grr... Debian. I never had this problem under SuSE. Don't
have it on my other machines (FreeBSD and MacOS X), either. Am thinking
it might actually be easier to reinstall Scribus.
