The package p5-GDTextUtil seems to be able to
use FreeType engine, but I cannot draw texts
with ttf fonts.

Does anyone know how to use this?
Are there anyone using p5-GDTextUtil with ttf fonts?

$ perl -MGD::Text -e 'print "true\n" if GD::Text->new()->is_ttf;'
This command line should print `true' if GD::Text can
use ttf fonts.

my environment:
XFree86 4.3.0 (includes FreeType 2.1.0)
lang/perl58 (perl-5.8.0nb2)
graphics/p5-GD (p5-GD-2.07)
graphics/p5-GDTextUtil (p5-GDTextUtil-0.80nb1)
