Ideally, mkftcap would unique-ify duplicate names, although this isn't
easy to do in a shell script.

I'm not so sure that either mkftcap, "d.font -l" or the GUI should
sort the overall list. It may be better if mkftcap grouped fonts
according to the directory in which they reside, in which case, both
"d.font -l" and the GUI should preserve that ordering. Ditto if the
user manually re-orders the entries.
