RE: [ft-devel] Freetype on Mac uses deprecated functions

As far as I understand, this "warning" only applies to
code that reads the resource fork directly and doesn't
try to read fields in cpu-independent order.

A quicky look at the sources shows that:

 - src/base/ftobjs.c   is clean
 - src/base/ftmac.c    however does typecast pointers
                       from the FOND data into structure pointers

it seems clear that 'ftmac.c' needs to be cleared. However,
it should be too long if one uses FreeType's structure and
integer unpacking support (which is already used in all other
parts of the library anyway).

Hope this helps,
