These utilities are used when generating and building the packages
for the X.Org fonts.

This release adds two new options that some of the font packages will
offer in their configure scripts:

  --disable-all-encodings option to the macros used in the bdf font
    packages, to set the default to disabled for all encodings so that
    builders/packagers wanting to build just a subset of encodings can
    start with none and add the ones they want instead of having to disable
    all those they don't want.

  --with-fc-confdir to specify the path to fontconfig's configuration
    files directory (normally /etc/fonts), for packages like bh-ttf that
    install fontconfig configuration snippets.   If not specified,
    the default will be the confdir variable from fontconfig.pc if present
    (which it won't be until the next fontconfig release), otherwise

Existing font packages will need to have autoreconf run after installing
the new fontutil.m4 to take advantage of this fix - the next release of
the font packages will include this fix in the configure scripts
distributed in their tarballs.
