Copy verdana.ttf from Windows fonts directory to the 
directory reportlab/fonts on the Linux server (oredit
reportlab/rl_config.py to includea directory where you
put it)...

You should of course only do this if you have the proper written
permission from Microsoft's legal and licensing people
etc. etc.  I expect there is a standard Open Source Verdana
substtute somewhere..
