I may have done something wrong, but those tests take an incredibly long

I think the tests we need are just something to test to see that all of
the interfaces for freetype that are specified in the LSB spec are
present and functioning. The degree of functioning is something I'm not
clear on, but I think the first pass will be just to find the presence
of the interface and basic operation.

I don't suppose there's any existing tests for that.
