This woulnd't break anything - there is no point in separting the fonts into
different directories based upon type. KcmFontinst and kio_fonts will handle
mixed font types in the same dir, it has its own mechanism for creatnig
fonts.dir and fonts.scale (it doesn't use mkfontdir, ttmkfdir, or mkfontscale).
