Description of problem:
Hi @ all

The API2.pm located in /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.10.0/PDF/ contains the following line in the BEGINN section:

> @FontDirs = ( qw[ /usr/share/fonts/dejavu-fonts /usr/share/fonts ] );

The path to the DeJaVu font files is wrong! The correct path is /usr/share/fonts/dejavu!

This is the correct code:

> @FontDirs = ( qw[ /usr/share/fonts/dejavu /usr/share/fonts ] );

This bug produces a crash of the PDF::API2 module if you load a DeJaVu font.

Best regards,
Manuel Hecht

Development OTRS::ITSM

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
perl-PDF-API2.noarch  0.69-3.fc9 

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Load a DeJaVu font in a perl file to reproduce the error:

e. g.  my $Font = $PDF->ttfont( 'DejaVuSans.ttf' );

Actual Results:
The perl script dead with an syntax error.

Expected Results:
