Hmm. My Xorg version is 6.8.2. I know this is very old but its features are 
enough for us. I cross compiled it long time ago, and now we have some 
storage limitations. I grepped the source for "font" and come up with 
"BuildBuiltinFonts" in the config/cf/X11.tmpl file. Can I use it as a match 
for --enable-builtin-fonts?

Secondly, is this flag prevents the other fonts installed(only necessary ones) 
or fonts are installed but you can remove them?
