FWIW, I've extended d.text.new to support all of the options
previously supported by d.text.freetype (added: font=, path=, charset=
and -c), and replaced d.text.freetype with a script which simply calls

Also, d.font.freetype uses R_font() instead of R_font_freetype(); the
latter function (and its infrastructure) has now been removed.

[Actually, I may as well add a -l switch to d.font and replace
d.font.freetype with a script which calls d.font. I've only just
noticed that d.font is already reading the freetypecap file to get the
option list for the font= option.]
