I consider the fonts stuff "broken" when I have to wait minutes instead
of a few secs to load a font. The original issue resulted in a very
unfortunate flame war and I really do _NOT_ want that debate again.
If you really want an Imake flag for that then please make it an
equivalent for linking the tree copy of libFreeType2 statically.
Otherwise a very ugly bug creps back into the tree which was thought to
be fixed for the next Xorg release after X11R6.7.0 ...
