You need to create a PangoXFontMap yourself, and that knows how to
create PangoXFonts.  Now the question is why do you need the PangoX
backend?  That's really deprecated.

It's not implemented like that, no.  It all depends on the fontmap you
are using.  You choose your fontmap, and that generates a font for the
same backend that the fontmap belongs too.

For sample application code, check out examples/pango-view in Pango
source tree.
