Alas. All is lost. I tried to compile xfree86 4.3 on my gnome2.2 woody
backport, and it requires freetype 2.1.3. Installing this version of
freetype will prevent semi-offical openoffice.org from being installed
(but adrian bunk has it) and gnome2.2 backport.
You _could_ try to install xlibs 4.2.1 from the gnome2.2 backport-- this
would allow you to use the xfree86 4.3 drivers, semi-official
openoffice.org and gnome2.2 backport on woody. However, I don't know
how great it would be to mix xlibs 4.2.1 and the rest of xfree86 at 4.3.
You may want to try testing-- it has an almost complete gnome2.2 with
the new freetype and fontconfig. I believe you can get openoffice.org
on it, and somebody has to have xfree86 4.3 for it too.
