I like the intent here, but libXfont is so much of a disaster that I'd
rather see the much more radical solution of copying it into the server
first and then trimming from there.

But in a narrow sense, that the server has to know what FPEs libXfont
implements at all is just silly.  Just make libXfont do:

void RegisterFpeFunctions(void) {
    /* ... */

and compile _that_ conditionally based on what kind of FPEs you have.
