Hello,
Fonts provided by the font-gnu-freefont package seem to be broken. In mycase, under Guix system, they do not appear in LibreOffice,gnome-terminal shows them as squares and they do not have any effects ininkscape (a fallback font is probably use instead).
Commits 5483a2d0a913fe533744699e9ef5757c6e3f6983 and405c0c947cfd59d7bfb81052545cd635970d2d0c are possible culprits. However,after testing removing the fontconfig-file-system service did not solveat least one occurence of the problem, so the latter is probably notrelated.
Issue 40783 is probably related.
Have a nice day,

What's the output of
$ fc-list | grep FreeSansBoldOblique
and what is it after running
$ fc-cache -rv
?
If the latter didn't fix the problem, please include its output here.

I don't think so.
Kind regards,

There are no wrong directories.

I applied & replied to Raghav's patch[0] before I saw yours. This is the search keyword I was missing, thanks!
/share/fonts/webfonts does seem to be a standard thing, so I'll apply this hunk (minus the ‘fix’ claim).
Thank you very much,

Great! You can do so yourself by sending your next mail to <nnn>-done@debbugs.gnu.org instead of <nnn>@.

No need to apologise for this. We got a slightly nicer WOFF bikeshed out of it.
