 Humm... fontenc layer is not new one. Fontenc layer is already
included since XFree86 4.0. The Fontenc layer functions ware included
in the libXfont.Fontenc layer is separated from libXfont, this library
is called libfontenc.a since XFree86 4.2.

 About fontenc layer is described in section 4.1 of README.fonts.
