I know that, however, if I remember well, X11 can't allow kerning control, I
should use t1lib and the freetype libraries for implementing a new font
rendering engine (however this will require to have installed properly those
libraries in order to allow gDynText to run ...).
Is there anyone with a better solution for the "kerning problem"? ;)
