The documentation to install dejavu fonts states:

As a font installation example, consider the installation of the DejaVu
fonts. From the unpacked source directory, run the following commands as
the |root| user

install -v -d -m755 /usr/share/fonts/dejavu && install -v -m644 *.ttf
/usr/share/fonts/dejavu && fc-cache -v /usr/share/fonts/dejavu
-----------------------------------

The second line seems to imply the unpacked source directory is
dejavu-fonts-ttf-2.37/ttf.  Perhaps I don't understand, but isn't it
dejavu-fonts-ttf-2.37?

If so, should the line be 'install -v -m644 ttf/*.ttf
/usr/share/fonts/dejavu &&'?

No.

tar -xf dejavu-fonts-ttf-2.34.tar.bz2
cd dejavu-fonts-ttf-2.37    <------   Just like every other package.
...

I think the issue rhubarbpieguy  is pointing out is that the *.ttf files are
in a sub-directory (dejavu-fonts-ttf-2.37/ttf), but the install command in the
book is trying to copy them from the current directory (*.ttf instead of
ttf/*.ttf).

That's correct.
