 something in the Mozilla build scripts to install them in the directory
 where fonts are bundled. That would avoid modifying tor-browser-bundle.git

 Although this is not documented yet the fastest approach is to just take
 an existing Tor Browser bundle and just bisect the tor-browser parts
 copying the result over the respective bundle parts with each iteration.
 This is not working anymore with having so many parts in tor-browser-
 bundle.git. Having everything in tor-browser could help us debug issues
 due to font updates easier as well.

 Very good point. I'll give this approach a try.
