Description Nicolas Mailhot 2008-11-14 07:49:39 UTC
Upstream lately added support for all sorts of nifty libraries, and our fontforge package needs to be tweaked to accomodate them

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.

More information and reason for this action is here:

spiro isn't yet in fedora. It will need to be packaged... I can look at doing that. 

cairo support doesn't seem to work. There is a compile failure that upstream says is fixed, but doesn't seem to yet be in the newest release. ;( 
This also causes pango to not work. ;( 

I will see about finding a patch or the next release once it's out.

I have just built a new version with cairo/pango support. 

I just submitted a libspiro package for review. 
See bug 476758

Comment 4 Kevin Fenzi 2008-12-18 03:44:18 UTC
libspiro is in, and fontforge is rebuilt with it: 


And with that, I close this bug. ;)
