As of r182423, this converter is now enabled by default on Mac, iOS, and Windows ports. I intend to start removing the old codepath soon, so if your port is not using the converter, please enable it!

Given that this is the direction that we will be heading in general, now would be an excellent time for all the ports/platforms to turn on the ENABLE(SVG_OTF_CONVERTER) flag and provide feedback and bug reports!
