Hello Freetype developers!

A few weeks ago I have reported a "bug" in Visual C project file

So just before release of FT 2.1.8 I would like to clarify if really
ftbbox.c is an optional feature file. Should 'FT_Outline_Get_BBox()'
be optional?

List of basic files above (ftsystem.c, ftinit.c, and ftdebug.c) does
not mention for example ftglyph.c that of course is in the visual c

Moreover is it ok that win32 build is incompatible with Unix versions,
that has these features compiled in by default? I believe that can
confuse some peoples...

Thanks a lot
