>> Just thinking out loud, you don't think it would be better to build harfbuzz separately, but as a static library, that is then included in libfontmanager? The main win of doing that, I think, is the ability to have all the disabled warnings confined to the lower-quality upstream source. The resulting code would be the same. And from a build performance perspective I don't think any way of doing it matters.

I've clearly separated the warnings we are disabling for HARFBUZZ and there's really not a lot of likelihood in my mind that these warnings will suddenly also start to apply to the small amount of JDK code that is in libfontmanager which is also much simpler code.

I was actually thinking that such a change would be simpler; more or less amounting to changing from LIBRARY to STATIC_LIBRARY. But if you feel that it is too much work, fine...
