It shows:

    ftcrhb:-PfEd-DejaVu Sans 
Mono-normal-normal-normal-*-15-*-*-*-m-0-iso10646-1 (#x37E)

so it must be HarfBuzz?

system-configuration-features is a variable defined in ‘C source code’.
Its value is

"XPM JPEG TIFF GIF PNG RSVG CAIRO SOUND GPM DBUS GSETTINGS GLIB NOTIFY
INOTIFY ACL LIBSELINUX GNUTLS LIBXML2 FREETYPE HARFBUZZ M17N_FLT LIBOTF
ZLIB TOOLKIT_SCROLL_BARS GTK3 X11 XDBE XIM MODULES THREADS PDUMPER LCMS2
GMP"

Yeah, it is.
