Hi, maintainer.

Defoma-hints of defoma doesn't work now.
The reason is that perlftlib that was a library need to move defoma-hints
was removed from Debian.
I fixed the library of defomat to use libfont-freetype-perl as taking the
place of perlftlib.
However, because the function of some Freetype is not implemented, it has not worked yet.
This patch is used to implement an insufficient function.
Those functions are functions to get the encoding of Font and FT_Get_Sfnt_Name, FT_Get_Sfnt_Name_Count.

Please cehck and apply this patch.
And I don"t know Perl so much. Please point it out if wrong.

Best regards,
