Just to clarify: setting "LC_CTYPE" to something invalid only
suppresses use of UTF-8, making the library treat all strings
as consisting of single-byte characters and using the most basic
(and probably fastest) string drawing routines, but doesn't make
it use X11 bitmap fonts. (The latter can only be achieved by run-
ning 'configure' with the '--disable-xft' option before compi-
ling the library, in which case the macro 'FL_ENABLE_XFT' is
defined to 0.)

As long as you also supply the XForms library, which you
build with '--disable-xft', there shouldn't be a problem,
but people that don't have control about the library used
with their programs have some reason for being concerned.

                          Best regards, Jens
