As described in the thread "FL_BOLD/FL_ITALIC & Xft font sorting" in fltk.development on October 3rd 2012, the method used in FLTK to obtain a bold or italic font from a given font (OR'ing in a constant to fontnumber) does'nt work reliably for external fonts.

The supplied patch adds a few methods to do this in a more general way.
It also changes Fl_Browser and Fl_Help_View, which currently use the unreliable way, making them work with all fonts.

Hmm, this looks like a good code improvement.

I don't know much about the font system internals to weigh in,
but I'll bet Ian/Manolo and possibly Albrecht might have some
opinion on this.

Seems a better route to go..
