dh_installdefoma is a debhelper program that is responsible for
installing files related to defoma (DEbian FOnt MAnager) into package
build directories. dh_installdefoma can be used by defoma-aware pack

needed to register a package as a defoma-aware and/or font package

installed in etc/defoma/hints/package.hints in the package build direc

defoma-font. So when you create a defoma font package, what you need
to do is only to put its hints file in debian/package.defoma-hints and
install font files written in the hints file in the appropriate loca

only to put its defoma-script file in debian/package.defoma. The script
file is automatically installed in the package build directory.
