make_multibyte_string is better, I think.

And I don't think I understand how you get the Lisp string to have the
face information.  The original C char* string cannot have that
information as part of the string's data, so where will the face data
for the Lisp string come from?

Po Lu answered about the XftDrawStringUtf8 part.

For the faces part, I think face_at_string_position is a better
interface.  It returns a face ID, from which you can get to the
corresponding 'struct face' via FACE_FROM_ID.
