I just tried fc-match 'nimbus sans l condensed' in Hardy, Etch, SUSE 10.2,
FC8, SUSE 10.3, Knoppix 4.0.2, and Mandriva 2008.0. The only match I got was
on Mandriva. Similar results on
http://mrmazda.no-ip.com/auth/Font/font-nimbsansc.html .OTOH, I got multiple
hits on DejaVu Sans Condensed
http://mrmazda.no-ip.com/auth/Font/font-dejasansc.html . What systems did you
test on that makes you think this font is installed "on every Linux system"?
