[ft] Need some help getting started

Hi all,

I'm working on a simple GUI that will run on an ARM based system using Linux
2.4 with framebuffer support.  My application is simple enough that a window
system (x or whatever) seems like overkill.  At this point, I am able to
render images on my display but now I need a way to render text.  Looks like
FreeType is what I'm looking for.  I'm kinda new at this Linux game so I was
wondering if you might be able to give me some pointers on how I might
implement FT on my system.  I have a working cross development toolchain,
etc.  Are there any simple demos that write FT generated text to the
framebuffer device?

Sorry if this request seems a little broad but I don't know enough to know
what I really need to ask.

Any help much appreciated,
