gl_font8x8 - a packed 8x8 pixel font
extern unsigned char *gl_font8x8;
gl_font8x8 contains a packed pixel font with 8x8 pixels per character
which you can use in your vgagl programs. Before you can use it, you
might need to expand it with gl_expandfont(3), though.
It is possible to use non expanded fonts (but it is slower) when the
FONT_COMPRESSED gl_setwritemode(3) flag is set.
