This LGTM, thanks.

It can stay in ftfont.c, but please make the second hunk
unconditional, so that the variable is known and available in all the
builds, just say in the doc string that this variable has effect only
on the xftfont backend.  I have bad experience with variables that are
only defined in some configurations: it means both trouble for users
who use more than one configuration and more maintenance headaches.
Come to think of it, maybe it's best to move DEFVAR_BOOL to font.c,
for that very reason.

Thanks.
