Thank you!  This applied cleanly on vdr 1.4.5, and unlike the previous
version, this one works with the freetype libs in Debian unstable.

Do you have a script for translating the /video directory from latin1
to utf8?  I attach my script for this, also available from
http://www.iki.fi/~msmakela/software/misc/.  Am I right that the
info.vdr files need to be translated as well?  The attached script
recodes the contents of all files named 00INDEX.  I guess that you
could replace 00INDEX with info.vdr in the script and be all set.
I'll test that as soon as I can.

One small suggestion: could you check for the availability of the fonts
at startup?  I initially only copied arialbd.ttf and arial.ttf, and
got a crash later when courbd.ttf was not available.
