        Description

        Since https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8249821 has now separated
        out libharfbuzz from libfontmanager, it would be natural for distros
        to want to link against the libharfbuzz that they distribute with the
        platform, as is done for libfreetype. But there is no way to do it.
        We should add a --with-harfbuzz=system configure option.

        Like similar options it would only be useful on platforms that distribute
        libharfbuzz, so there will be no need to try to support windows and macos
        for this option.
