The Mac Carbon port in the trunk already does not compile regardless
of its font backend setting.  Also, the Mac Cocoa port does not
support the legacy font code now.  That says, switching to the new
font backend does not do harm to either of Mac ports with respect to
the current status.  So I think it's not necessary to wait for the
merger of the Mac Cocoa port to switch to the new font backend.
