I haven't been able yet to spot a visual difference using Opera with or
with suse_freetype2 and suse_fontconfig, but if it actually uses them, I
wouldn't bother making them optional dependencies, just throw them in. :-)
Cfr., the mozilla or firefox packages don't option'ize those either,
although they can be built without.
