New point version

libXfont provides the core of the legacy X11 font system, handling the index
files (fonts.dir, fonts.alias, fonts.scale), the various font file formats,
and rasterizing them.  It is used by the X servers, and will eventually be
used by the X Font Server (xfs), but should not be used by normal X11 clients.
X11 clients access fonts via either the new APIs in libXft, or the legacy
APIs in libX11.

This version of libXfont is not compatible with xfs, or with the legacy
bdftopcf utility; these packages require libXfont 1.5, not libXfont 2.0
or later. The two versions can be installed in parallel, and eventually
the need for 1.5 will go away. We apologize for the inconvenience.

This minor maintenance release cleans up issues found by Coverity and gcc,
as well as additional hardening through the use of APIs with stronger bounds
