For me, the testsuite is currently broken.

Apparently the testsuite requires both python2 and which. But since I have versions of both, I'm inclined to add those in comments and mark it as 'does not have a working testsuite' unless I get a response.

Despite that, as with many other packages, it works fine.

I was mistaken about the tests, it is only the last three which failed (lots of compiles before that, I had missed the PASS output fro mthe main tests. These three were testing some aspect of font manipulation, using 'ttx' which comes from FontTools. But they failed whether or not that package was installed.

Upstream has now recoded this (possibly, my scripted 'which' was the problem, no idea) and when ttx is missing they skip, and pass if it is present. In either event, make check no longer ends in error.Patch added to the repo.
