    After some effort (thanks to everyone who helped out on IRC) I got HEAD
    to build with xft, and I now have pretty fonts on the screen. Yay!

    However, Abi only seems to be aware (in the font drop down menu and
    dialog) of a fairly small subset of the fonts I have installed. Other
    applications are aware of them, so they are there. Oddly, Arial and
    Times New Roman are among the fonts Abi can't see, although it can
    handle documents containing them perfectly well.

    Is this a bug in Abi, or is my system misconfigured?
