Let me add that in case of tests it will most likely not even help to
ship a common font with QGIS: on different platforms the text is
rendered by different libraries (e.g. FreeType on linux, native
backends on windows/mac).

Also, renderer tests should IMHO have some tolerances instead a set of
anomalies. For example, in multi-threading branch some tests started
to fail because of some microscopic differences - this will require
another set of reference images (and anomaly images) although there is
no real difference. This looks like an interesting tool for comparing
