The (optional) fontbox library dependency was added for the OpenType font / 
subset support which is already in trunk. This patch for subsetting Type 1 
fonts adds no new dependencies and does not use fontbox.

Hi All,

About a week ago I posted a patch to add Type 1 subset support to FOP. All 
referenced Type 1 fonts (unless set to embedding-mode="full") will now be 
subset by default much like the behaviour exhibited by TrueType and OpenType. 
As this is a big feature and quite involved I think it is necessary to vote on 
whether to add this feature in it's current state to FOP. I'm not sure if 
anyone has taken a look at what has gone into this or tried it out yet, but it 
might be worth doing so before making your decision.

I am going to be away for the next week or so but will tally up the votes and 
post the result once I am back.

Here is a link to the patch and issue:

Just to remind me, what new (external) library dependencies does this entail?
