By default, the build system does build all modules. However,
what will be really linked to the executable is determined by
the content of ftmodule.h

If you want to reduce the number of modules compiled in the
library, you must modify the build system (i.e. some Makefiles)
at this time.

By the way, you don't need psname, unless you want to support
automatic Unicode charmap synthesis for those fonts that don't
have them (which is _extremely_ rare with TrueType & OpenType
, but much more common with Type 1 and CFF)
