Hi Karlin

In my opinion these fonts should be provided by linux distros.
I've just read that a new package urw-base35-fonts will replace the obsolete urw-fonts in Fedora 27 (which should be released in November):

Upstream repository is:

I'm testing a new container based on Fedora 27, where urw-base35-fonts is installed. However, I'm still getting the configure error because it seems that lilypond need the .otf files and this package contains only *.t1 and *.afm files:

# ls /usr/share/fonts/urw-base35
