Is this package still necessary and if so, why? I haven't used it in years and Steam looks fine for me.

As commented by somebody else over a year ago, the dependencies in this package are bogus. Please remove both of them entirely. See the Wiki for font packaging guidelines.

Fonts neither require dependencies nor an install script, please remove them. See Font package guidelines.

worked with no mods on regular linux x86_64, just install before steam client

can this package be integrated directly into the steam build?

With the recent release of the steam link app for raspberry pi's, this package is now useful on the ARM architecture.

Please set arch=('any') in the PKGBUILD to allow raspberry pi users to take advantage of this package.

Not use the -f in fc-cache, either can cause system freeze and is discouraged/not standard package guideliness for fonts in arch[1][2][3]

mkfontscale /usr/share/fonts/steam-fonts
mkfontdir /usr/share/fonts/steam-fonts

in .install file after 'fc-cache -fsv' . btw. in other packages is

echo -n "Updating font cache... "
fc-cache -f -s > /dev/null
mkfontscale /usr/share/fonts/steam-fonts
mkfontdir /usr/share/fonts/steam-fonts
echo "done."
