libXfont provides the core of the legacy X11 font system, handling the index
files (fonts.dir, fonts.alias, fonts.scale), the various font file formats,
and rasterizing them.  It is used by the X display servers (Xorg, Xvfb, etc.)
and the X Font Server (xfs), but should not be used by normal X11 clients.  X11
clients access fonts via either the new APIs in libXft, or the legacy APIs in

In the past, systems needed to provide both libXfont 1.5 & 2.0 libraries
to support the full X Window System.  If your system has updated to at
least xfs 1.2.0 and bdftopcf 1.1, then libXfont 1.5 should no longer be
needed and you should only need libXfont 2.0.x going forward.
