[GRASS-dev] Can't get font face index to work

Any index I try is displaying the same default face 0.

Bypassing the freetypecap for now so I can try it:

d.font path="/System/Library/Fonts/Times.dfont"
d.text -m text="some text"

-> Times roman used

d.font path="/System/Library/Fonts/Times.dfont|1"
d.text -m text="some text"

-> Times roman


d.font path="/System/Library/Fonts/Times.dfont|4"
d.text -m text="some text"

-> Times roman

This one is outside the range of available faces (4) in this font file.

Tried putting them in the freetypecap:


d.font doesn't complain, but when I click where I want to draw the  
text, it says "WARNING: unable to open font map 'Times0'"

All generalizations are dangerous, even this one.
