	Hello, Paolo. Please do not reply privately.

	xtt was not selected by default previously because it was incompatible with 
freetype. In fact, there was a note in latest XFree86 Debian packages, in the 
modules selection, like:

"The bitmap, freetype, speedo, type1, and xtt modules are all font "
"rasterizers.  The freetype and xtt modules should not be enabled at the "
"same time, as they are incompatible.  The freetype module should be used "
"for Western languages and anti-aliased font support; the xtt module "
"should be used for East Asian character set support (specifically, for "
"CID-keyed fonts)."

	That was why we disabled xtt by default.

	Best regards,

You idiots, you've captured their stunt doubles.
