Enhanced cube2font that provides character mapping, color PNG support, and other new features

This is an enhanced version of cube2font. The most significant new features are:

  • Glyph mapping (supports mapping of glyphs from multiple fonts).
  • Digit-only output, to help create the hud capture digit glyphs
    (packages/hud/digit_{blue,red,grey}.png and packages/hud/digit_font.cfg).
  • Color PNG support (with and without alpha), including support for custom
    character foreground and background colors. (This is needed to
    generate the digit glyphs.)
  • Support for negative inborder and outborder values. (Negative inborder
    values provide a simple way to "bold" a font.)
  • Optional fatal error on missing glyphs.

Minor new features:

  • Ability to explicitly set the font name in the config file.
  • Ability to force a font to be of fixed width.
  • Noexec mode (useful for automating font processing, to weed out fonts
    with missing glyphs for example).
  • Version display (including copyright) with --version.
  • Alternate font packing algorithm. The original algorithm can be used by
    specifying the --sauerpack option. (This is provided for comparison purposes.
    The intent is to delete the old algorithm after others have tested the new one.)
  • Additional error checking and reporting, especially for Free Type errors.

The package includes cube2font-enhanced.c and a detailed README with examples and instructions on how to build. Note that no new dependencies were introduced, so you should be able to build this new version by just replacing the current cube2font.c and using the existing build method.
