Summary0001607: Different glyph outputs from cairo and gd

libgd and cairo produce different font glyphs even when using the same
fonts. The input file uses both Times-Roman and URW Gothic L.
Cairo resolves both to /usr/X11/lib/X11/fonts/TTF/Vera.ttf. Libgd
resolves the latter to /usr/X11/lib/X11/fonts/TTF/Vera.ttf, but the
former is resolved to /Library/Fonts/Times New Roman.ttf.

The two output files show the results from
\<A HREF="b1648.gif"\>-Tgif\</A\> and \<A HREF="b1648a.gif"\>-Tgif:gd\</A\>.
The two outputs are different. For the second node, even though
both outputs use the same font, the glyphs are different.

The libgd behavior is identical using the Graphviz libgd and the
one on the system.
Additional Information

[erg] Comparing the Times-Roman nodes, where glyphs appear in both
outputs, against the Unicode standard, it is clear that libgd is
getting the correct glyphs and that cairo is putting up incorrect
glyphs. Apparently, Vera.ttf does not have valid glyphs for those
characters, hence the blanks.
