The attached patch is against the harfbuzz branch, and it adds
`xfthb' and `ftcrhb' backends that use HarfBuzz for shaping.  I
also tried adding the `mac-cthb' backend, but it is not included
in the patch.

With the `ftcrhb' font backend, one can now display regional flag

(make-frame '((font-backend ftcrhb)))
(set-fontset-font t '(#x1F1E6 . #x1F1FF) (font-spec :family "Noto Color
(set-char-table-range composition-function-table '(#x1F1E6 . #x1F1FF)
                      '([".[\x1F1E6-\x1F1FF]" 0 font-shape-gstring]))
(insert (+ ?j (- #x1F1E6 ?a)) (+ ?p (- #x1F1E6 ?a)))
