I'm sure that this has come up before, but I can't find an answer.
Is there a way to determine, at runtime, whether the bytecode hinter
has been enabled?

I can do this with:
but I have to include freetype/internal/ftobjs.h to do so, which
suggests to me that this isn't something I should rely on.  Is there a
better way?

The reason that this would be useful, is that I'd like to respect the
gasp table and turn off antialiasing for certain pixel size.  However,
I only want to do so when we have proper hinting enabled.
Non-antialiased, unhinted glyphs just look too ugly.

Many thanks,
