[webkit-gtk] Font question

I built webkit/gtk 1.1.90 using mingw32 for win32.  I used
--with-unicode-backend=glib and --with-font-backend=pango.  The result
was used to replace 1.1.5 (I think).

Then, this e-mail showed up on the gnucash development list:

> Hello, developers.

> Gnucash reports worked fine in Japanese by setting pango.aliases

The reports are created by creating an html string, writing it to a
file, the loading it using webkit_web_view_load_uri().  Does anyone know
why pango.aliases might not work anymore?  The version of webkit was
cross-compiled on opensuse 11.2 using package (among others)
mingw32-pango-1.26.2-1.19 (and associated -devel- package).
