How much important is it to have an entry for the language in the file
fcfreetype.c of fontconfig and related entry in the header file
ttnameid.h of freetype2?
I observed that to have the language listed in gdm selection list,
both of these entries are necessary. But that raises one more question
that is, for languages that do not have MS or MAC codes, what has to
be done as all the language and their codes listed in these files are
defined according to the MS and MAC codes? There are many languages
including Maithili, in iso639-2 that do not have such codes.
