Description
6767175: [zh_CN/zh_TW/ko]Chinese and Korean charactors display as square boxes in OpenSolaris

was integrated into 6u12. The fix was the delivery of a fontconfig.OpenSolaris.properties.src
file based on the latest available 2008.11 build (snv_99) at the time of the work.

Apparently the very next 2008.11 build (snv_100) REMOVED the Korean font used by that file.
This was a late change there to help fit on a CD.

The result is this bug : http://defect.opensolaris.org/bz/show_bug.cgi?id=8546

EVALUATION

The globalisation team have pointed to the new font that's available that we
should reference. Its a simple matter to update the font properties file.
The change is limited to display of Korean which is patently completely non-functional
on 2008.11 and 2009.06
