Small flaw in euro.txt hint ?

The euro hint defines a variable FONTMAP in file '/etc/sysconfig/font':

>---<snip>---
># Begin /etc/sysconfig/font
>
>FONTMAP=/usr/share/kbd/consolefonts/lat9u-08.psfu.gz
>
># End /etc/sysconfig/font
>---</snip>---

It then amends the 'loadkeys' scripts to load the desired FONTMAP:

>---<snip>---
>echo -n "Loading font..."
>/usr/bin/setfont $FONTMAP 2>/dev/null
>evaluate_retval
>---<snip>---


I think the file '/etc/sysconfig/font' should be sourced in the amended
'loadkeys' script, otherwise the FONTMAP variable will not be known to
'loadkeys' and the desired font won't be set.
