Pango/FT2 1.0 should work but IMHO Dia not even requires Pango/FT2 
on win32 at all. Additionally at least I don't plan to do any 
porting to use a library whiches future portability is 
questionable ...

Yupp. With my backporting of the DiaPsRenderer to use strings - not font
outlines - there even was some basic (latin-1 only) eps support again.

The 'native aliasing' requires Pango future though, i.e. a not yet
accepted patch to Pango/win32. See bug #94791.
