Replace text rendering functions currently in use by better, more flexible and faster ones.

libftgl[0] can be used to render standard font formats, giving greater flexibility about size and appearance of fonts. libftgl supports all the platforms we wish to support, so it's great for our needs.

Prerendered character maps can be used to turn text rendering in mere blitting, making it substantially faster and better supported than current methods.
