Follow-up Comment #3, bug #53060 (project gnustep):

Thank you for this background information. And yes, looking at your patch
could save me some time, as this is about the approach I want to follow
through. All that font stuff is always a bit harder than it should be and this
is mostly true due the levels of abstractions we have there. You always need
one indirection more :-(

As for the HAVE_FC check, I did introduce that when I first started to use
fontconfig with GNUstep. I am pretty sure it was needed at that time. But
later on when somebody (me?) added that coveredCharacterset method, FC
functions did get used unconditionally. This means for a few years GSXft has
only been usable with fontconfig and we now should make it a hard requirement.
This should reduce the amount of different implementations we have.
