The NS port doesn't support text shaping.  The Mac port, which used to
support text shaping only for left-to-right, now also supports for
right-to-left:

I'd appreciate it if you could accept its experimental/hackers-only
status and try it, because its right-to-left text shaping code is very
new and not fully tested.
