Fop font loading log

Fop appears to be misclassifying the font faces I have.

I'm loading the fonts by having fop scan the directory they're in using the
<fonts><directory> config param and it's finding them fine. However, Fop
doesn't seem to be able to tell the difference between the condensed and
non-condensed faces of these fonts. It also seems to think they all have the
same weight (400) as per the log excerpts below.

Here's an excerpt of the log output from fop where it detects the fonts. The
full log is at  http://pastebin.com/91u9bW10 . You can see that it seems unable
to distinguish the weights or how condensed they are:

Registering: HelveticaNeueLT Std Cn,normal,400 under F17
HelveticaNeueLT Std Cn,normal,400: Replacing HelveticaNeueLTStd-BdCn
(priority=23) by HelveticaNeueLTStd-Cn (priority=21)
Registering: HelveticaNeueLTStd-BlkCn,normal,400 under F18
Registering: Helvetica Neue LT Std,normal,400 under F18
Helvetica Neue LT Std,normal,400: Not replacing HelveticaNeueLTStd-Cn
(priority=21) by HelveticaNeueLTStd-BlkCn (priority=24)
Registering: HelveticaNeueLT Std Blk Cn,normal,400 under F18

By contrast, fontconfig identifies them as I'd expect:

$ fc-list | grep Neue
Helvetica Neue LT Std:style=55 Roman,Regular
Helvetica Neue LT Std,HelveticaNeueLT Std Cn:style=57 Condensed,Regular
Helvetica Neue LT Std,HelveticaNeueLT Std Blk Cn:style=97 Black
Helvetica Neue LT Std,HelveticaNeueLT Std Cn:style=77 Bold Condensed,Bold

These were originally OpenType fonts with CFF outlines; they were converted to
TrueType using FontForge. They behave as expected with other tools including
FontConfig and can be used normally in apps.

As these are commercial fonts I can't attach them to this bug report directly,
but I can lend them to anyone who needs them for testing purposes *only*. You
know how it is with font foundries.
