Mr. Sean McBride and Mr. Werner LEMBERG, Thank you for comments.
I attach 2 patch of this issue.

        This patch changes src/base/ftmac.c to use FSRef at maximum,
        if TARGET_API_MAC_OS9 is not defined. Originally written by
        Mr. George Williams and slightly modified by me.

        This patch adds FT_GetFile_From_Mac_ATS_Name() in
        src/base/ftmac.c, which is an AppleTypeService-based
        replacement of QuickDraw based FT_GetFile_From_Mac_Name(),
        written by me. If "HAVE_QUICKDRAW" is set to false on the
        future Mac OS X system without QuickDraw,
        FT_GetFile_From_Mac_Name() is changed to a function that
        returns error always. If "HAVE_ATS" is set to false on old
        system without ATS, FT_GetFile_From_Mac_ATS_Name() will be
        a function that returns error always.

        Also a patch for is attached to set HAVE_QUICKDRAW
        and HAVE_ATS automatically, if --with-old-mac-fonts=yes.

At present, yet I've not finished macro hooking for MPW,
ProjectBuilder, Xcode and CodeWarriror.

By the way, thinking of ATS patch is written to remove deprecated
function, the 2nd argument of FT_GetFile_From_Mac_ATS_Name() should
be FSRef, than FSSpec? The current API is designed to be same with
FT_GetFile_From_Mac_Name(), for programmers' convenience.
But, FSSpec is deprecated data type, so I should propose different
function using no deprecated data? For example:

        FT_GetFile_From_Mac_Name( const char*  fontName,
                                  FSRef*       pathRef,
                                  FT_Long*     face_index)

# yet I'm not sure if the idea of "face" fits ATS font model.

Mr. Sean McBride (and anybody interested in this issue),
how do you think of?
