I tried implementing load_truetype_table for ATSUI; text selection and
searching in the pdfs started working, but all the glyphs displayed in
Preview came out as boxes (ie same as glyphid 0).

Just for comparison, I rebuilt with the default options (no
atsui/quartz, ft/xlib enabled instead) and I see exactly the same
thing.  So it looks like this stuff is just broken on the mac, unless
it's my build.

If someone would send me a copy of pdf-features.pdf generated with the
ft font backend, so I can check its the same as mine, that'd be useful
though. I'm building from ac01dcb5ad077d8ea08a93348fc23d4a891abaae .
