PATCH: send error messages to stderr

If something makes configure fail and return a non-zero exit code, it
really should issue error messages to stderr, not stdout. Those errors
and warnings generated by autoconf itself, and not manually implemented,
handle it this way, so I hope we can do this here as well?
(This would have saved me quite some efforts recently.)
Output warnings on FontForge or FreeType missing to stderr, since these
conditions make configure fail.
