Summary0001457: In OS X, assigned subtitle fonts are not used for burn-in.

Instead, 'some' system font is used for burn-in. I guess LiberationSans-Regular.

When doing timed-text, the assigned font is used and copied to the subtitle folder/MXF (SMPTE).
If no specific font is assigned, LiberationSans-Regular is used.

Trying fontconfig backend to fix this; get a pango error that only coretext is enabled. Fix this then try again.

OSX environment build is failing for 32-bit (sigc++, when building examples, glibmm missing sigc++) - possibly fixed now (re-running). Maybe because Xcode got updated to 10.1 whose ld outputs a deprecation warning when it links i386. This seems to break lots of configure scripts. Downloaded 9.4.1 and ran xcode-select to enable it.

44996fb5279ca8dc2b4dc4aca841896c25b5e928 along with changes to the build environment (bumping harfbuzz) fixes this; need to see if there are consequences for rendering quality.

Need to do more testing, but basically, it works in OS X now.

I will try to render the same project using the same font files on both Win and Mac and see wether there are differences.

Cool, thanks. I'm hoping things should be more consistent across platforms now, as they all use freetype.

Okay, after loading a new font, the preview is not immediately updated with the new glyps. I need to save and reload the project. No big deal, but maybe...
