>From the NEWS:

   *** Which font backends to use can be specified by the X resource
   "FontBackend".  For instance, to use both X core fonts and Xft fonts:

   Emacs.FontBackend: x,xft

   If this resource is not set, Emacs tries to use all font backends
   available on your graphic device.

   *** New frame parameter `font-backend' specifies a list of
   font-backends supported by the frame's graphic device.  On X, they are
   currently `x' and `xft'.
