2017-04-27readme: Update for libXfont 2.0 interface changeAdam Jackson1-6/+11
While xfs can be more or less trivially ported to 2.0, bcftopcf cannot because the font file I/O API is no longer externally visible. This is intentional, because bdftopcf is literally the only consumer of that API, and is itself only used in the build process for the classic core fonts themselves. The plan for bdftopcf is to import a copy of libXfont 1.5 and link against that statically instead. Signed-off-by: Adam Jackson <ajax@redhat.com> Acked-by: Peter Hutterer <peter.hutterer@who-t.net>
