 This patch replaces quesoglc with direct harfbuzz + freetype usage.
 In addition to sharper text the addition of harfbuzz means that some
 scripts like arabic
 or hindic can be properly supported since harfbuzz provides ligature
 substitution.

 The rendering uses a stripped down iv_drawImage function so that it will
 work with any
 graphic API that implements iv_drawImage.

 I'm developping with Visual Studio 2015, I updated configure.ac and tested
 that it works
 on bash for Ubuntu but I think some testing on Linux and Mac are welcomed.
