I agree here. Unlike Gentoo users, I don't get regular package version
updates in my distribution, so I still have a fontforge 20050803, which
seems to work just fine. This would fail the configure check proposed in
an earlier mail. Unless someone really wants to test at exactly which
day fontforge started doing the things wine needs, the configure check
has to check for capabilities. This has the upside of being extensible
should our requirements change.
