It needs to be available to lib/driver; as the driver.h header file
isn't installed, I can only suggest graphics.h. Or into its own public
header <grass/fontcap.h> (it would need to be moved to either include
or lib/driver, so that it gets installed to $GISBASE/include before
lib/driver is compiled).

Also, can you update lib/driver/parse_ftcap.c to use the new file, and
change COM_Font_get() to use the type field (rather than the
$GISBASE/fonts heuristic) to determine stroke/freetype font.

Now that d.font no longer uses the freetypecap file, it's only
lib/driver which needs to understand the format.
