Bug Description

Some ARM processors support vector floating point, which can cause significant improvements in the performance of floating point code. As this must be selected at compile-time, with the -mfpu=vfp CFLAG, this requires a special build.

For performance reasons on such hardware, please enable such a build for pango1.0 for jaunty.

The changes are "ready" in Debian, but disabled by default. To be useful, this requires Debian to merge a glibc patch which isn't merged yet because we're still working on it; I intend to merge everything in Debian, but for now I would like if we could divert temporarily until our glibc changes are ready for merging and I can turn on the same build option in Debian's pango1.0.
