Hi Daniel,

I think a reorg of the source tree is probably a good idea to make it 
easier to automate and build components in the future.

I will hazard a guess, that the "fonts", "symbols" and "tests" 
directories are/were for testing the core mapserver and/or were needed 
to setup the mapserver demo page historically, but that is just my guess.
