First of all, are you using the _full_ font name, e.g.:

   ftview 12 arial.ttf

instead of

   ftview 12 arial

I have no problem here with the test tools, compiled with the same
compiler than you (on Windows 2000). Note that when compiling with
the Borland or Visual compilers, you won't be able to use wildcards
on the command line, like:

  ftview 12 *.ttf

this works with gcc-compiled executables though..
