x3270 - Missing Fonts
First, I want to say that the Raspberry Pi ThinClient project is fantastic and quite useful. However, I have noticed a minor issue.

The x3270 terminal emulator client normally includes a few fixed width fonts that accurately emulates those of the IBM TN3270 terminals. Those 3270-specific fonts seem to be missing from the RaspberryPi ThinClient. Selecting one from the Options menu, the user is informed that the "Font3270-xx" (where xx is the size) "was not found". Other fixed width fonts included with RaspberryPi ThinClient will work, but fail to fully provide an accurate emulation.

The fonts are included in the source code tar balls for the x3270 and would add less than 1MB to the RaspberryPi ThinClient image -- (src/x3270-3.3/*.bdf)
