*** Bug 94315 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
According to bug 52851 hebrew fonts are missing or mispointed correctly, while
according to bug 94315 the "bidi" use flag has no entry in the ebuild, as a
result the missing use flag entry causes any(!) RTL language to display
backwards. Those two bugs are different.
bidi support is present at least in the pre7 ebuild, I warmly suggest to use the
truetype font support that is already present in mplayer since I won't add other
useflag and/or add any bitmap font to the ebuild if there is another solution
that is easyer.
Could we close this bug?
Closing as WONTFIX, truetype fonts should work fine for that task
