I found out that my problem is probably somewhere else.
I ran the little test "pangoft2togm HELLO.utf8 > test.pgm"
and the output is a white square. I then upgraded from
my old freetype version to 2.1.2 and the output is still
a white square. Then I had a look at the paps programm
(Pango To PostScript) and it only writes Latin text and
no Greek, Hebrew, Chinese etc Obviously, me setup is not
right, but since I am running the most recent SuSE 8.0
and Pango draws everything nicely on screen, I don't know
where to look.

Thanks for any hint,
