After copying several Mac OS X style .dfont files to my Ubuntu machine, the
fonts did show up in GNOME applications like AbiWord, but doesn't
seem to recognize them.

As far as I can descern .dfont files are a variation on normale TrueType fonts,
where a single font file contains multiple styles (Regular, Bold, Italic, ...).

I believe the initial reporter is looking for native .dfont support.

Im not very familiar with font stuff. @hdu: Is this a defect (as initially
written) or more an enhancement?

Please don't slot this as a Macintosh only bug.

This is not a macintosh bug! This affects everything *but* Macintosh!
I think this would be highly desirable for people interchanging documents.

not a MAC specific bug...
