Then there is no point in using FreeType for loading font files at all,
(or adding support for new font file formats to FreeType) since FreeType
can load fonts from memory.

This code snippet causes a stack corruption since load_enumed_resource has
wrong calling convention. I wonder whether gcc issued a warning here.
