Just a hint ... (for the next release, perhaps)
gitk (i.e tcl-tk) requires an "x-server" (operational dependency). For that reason, I
have xorg-server installed (which includes the XWin command).
XWin (which provides me the required "x-server") is invoked as follows:
XWin --multiwindow & # now I have an x-server running ...
gitk is invoked as follows:
DISPLAY=:0 gitk --all
gitk will crash (silently), unless I have font-adobe-dpi75 installed as well ...
gitk does NOT require font-adobe-dpi75 in setup.ini, but apparently it is required in
order for gitk NOT to crash.
Hint: packages like xman and xterm have font-adobe-dpi75 as a requirement in setup.ini
(yes, I could have installed xinit, which (transitively) requires font-abobe-dpi75)
