Actually, it's not just the charset values: on the japanese/TrueType
directory, all the strings, charset and langset values are broken.  I'm
rather confused as to how these font caches get generated though: I
haven't yet observed fc-cache generating a broken cache file.  Has
anyone seen fc-cache being bad, or is it some other program?
