    The tests fail with Travis-CI. When I run 'make test' on my own Linux box they are skipped by default. I'm not sure what is different in the Travis-CI build that causes them to attempt to run.

    This isn't a real 'fix' but more of a preference to prioritize getting the build-bots to work before trying to figure out what is wrong with this file or why it won't run.

    Ok, I understand now.

    There seems to be a bunch of real issues with this though. I've asked Lenard if he can investigate. Otherwise I'll take more of a look. I don't think we should release with the font or freetype modules broken. Since they are fairly core, and widely used. Unlike some other modules (like scrap) I think are probably good to skip and not hold up a release.

    I think it's ok for the bots to fail until we fix this? Or maybe there's some reason I'm not thinking of.
