I have got text rendering working here for wxGTK builds and I am 
currently trying to work out how to best check things in, which is a 
bit tricky because my implementation is for the 
GTK/Pango/fontconfig/FreeType chain only, not for MacOS builds, so I 
will have to add some empty MacOS stubs and then hope that they 
compile OK so I do not break the Mac builds when I check things in.

I guess that Bopper's question really was about the text tool, which 
is still some way off. Enabling text rendering does at least enable a 
few other things, e.g., here, I can select text objects and move them, 
apply a shadow, etc., though without the text tool enabled, for 
obvious reasons, text cannot be created or edited.
