To get the list of fonts from X for FreeType, I need to include Xlib.h,

Or even better C++:
namespace X {
#include "XLib.h"

Would be nice, wouldn't it?  

Why can't you use the XListFonts (and XFreeFonts) surrogates defined by
the gtk-1.3-win32-production branch which work on string lists too and
are rather portable ? They are called
gdk_font_list_new/gdk_font_list_free and can be implemented as simple
wrappers on X.

Because I need to get at the actual filenames, not just font names, to feed
to FreeType.  Currently, I'm looking at XGetFontPath to get it.
