I think we need to add pango-devel as a build requirement, so that the
cairo graphics device uses the pango layout engine.

If you want to test this, I have rebuilt the RPMS with mock, after
adding pango-devel to BuildRequires, and put them here:

I don't get the same "missing mu" bug, but I have some commercial fonts
installed. I do get error messages about missing font metrics, however,
which would be due to the lack of pango.

I also noticed that libRmath-devel does not pull in the right release of
libRmath. The requirements for libRmath-devel are currently:

Requires: libRmath = %{version}, pkgconfig

but should be:

Requires: libRmath = %{version}-%{release}, pkgconfig
