Ticket #13045 (closed defect: fixed)
freetype needs --with-old-mac-fonts to properly handle resource-fork-only fonts
|Reported by:||blb@…||Owned by:||ryandesign@…|
Several fonts in /Library/Fonts are resource-fork-only (eg Arial which has a data-fork size of 0) and will not be seen by freetype (and hence fontconfig, where I first saw this problem) without the --with-old-mac-fonts switch to configure. This can be seen by running /opt/local/bin/fc-list (part of fontconfig) and looking for the basic Arial font. Without the switch, it only sees the Arial Hebrew (which are data-fork fonts), and with the switch, several more Arial fonts appear.
Will attach the simple Portfile diff.
