Sounds cool. Although did you know that the next Slackware release is pretty 
close and that XFCE 4.10 will be included in it?

But anyway, the ARCH variable helps decides whether /usr/lib or /usr/lib64 is 
used when installing during the `make install` step, so setting it to "noarch" 
could be bad if you actually need to use /usr/lib* for anything in that 
particular script. But I imagine for fonts, you wouldn't be installing to lib 
so setting it to "noarch" would probably work.
