Ticket #16341 (closed enhancement: fixed)
freetype variant request
|Reported by:||cabanela@…||Owned by:||ryandesign@…|
Description (last modified by ryandesign@…) (diff)
As noted at
There is a problem in Leopard (possibly on intel Macs) where calling CoreFoundation with a fork() causes a crash. Unforuntately, if freetype attempts to access native font suitcases, it will access a carbon library that triggers the crash.
Would it be possible to request a freetype variant that would allow disabling of the carbon library access. This can be done by adding
to the configure line. I don't know what other ports this might affect, but none of them can be working on Leopard at this moment.
