I don't know if this will be useful or not, but another open source project I like keeping tabs on (FS2_Open) recently added TTF font support with NanoVG (IIRC). FTGL was also mentioned in the same thread.

Same problem as always: It only renders glyphs but does not handle any special text layout or text with mixed scripts.

Pango

It seems to be part of GTK2+, and the Linux version of GZDoom already uses GTK for the IWAD selection dialog IIRC.
