Hi, All.

CJK Patches are ready.
I attache three patch files to this mail.

  This patch fixed Font glyph handling.(fixed problem (1) and (2))
  This patch fixed metirics problem.((3))
 This adds example files about CJK.

--  In espgs 8.15.x, default value of compile-inits option of 'configure'
 is 'disable'. But, in 8.60, it is 'enable'.
So, if you want to use same 'cidfmap' setting as espgs 8.15.x, 
you should specify '--disable-compile-inits' option.
--   'fontconfig' is not used for CID font.(whether with or without
CJK patch)
