The fly program is from 2001, it references the old ttf library before
truetype came along (I used a perl interface to gd back in '01), but
fly doesn't provide an interface to the gd ttf strings anyway, so the
include is spurious. Fly's author made no comment on the change when
I wrote him.
New toy using fly is demo'd here: http://bugsplatter.mine.nu/system/
