20100501 build from upstream is in Rawhide and a scratch build is available for F13. Currently, the new work on expand stroke in 20100501 causes serafettin-cartoon-fonts to FTBFS, or that would be a good candidate for upgrading F13.

+
[[rhbug:608477|608477]] is puzzling because the backtrace is clear. Digging in fontforge-devel archives suggests that the Freetype rendering used here has previously (2007-08-05) caused problems because an internal API is being used. Caused problems when going to FT 2.3.5. Now we're on FT 2.3.11, has this bitten again? Seems this was to do with debugging TrueType hinting, so may not apply.
