OK, given the way this font is encoded, the _only_ way to correctly
render its glyphs is to enable the TrueType bytecode interpreter in
either FreeType 1.x or 2.

This usually means defining a macro like TT_CONFIG_OPTION_BYTECODE_INTERPRETER
in a configuration file. This is documented in the FreeType packages in a
file named "PATENTS" I believe..
