have you looked at libgd?  I don't really know exactly what a frame
buffer is (ie, format?) but libgd is pretty easy to use in concert with
freetype to draw words in various fonts into a images of various
types...  which presumably could be loaded into a frame buffer.

if someone would like to talk about what exactly a frame buffer is and
how one might manipulate it (with bit-wise operators or whatever) and/or
display it, I'd love to hear what you have to say.  Thanks.
