     void vcl_char_init (struct vcl_char *obj,  uns code, uns charmap,
                         int font_id, real font_size,
                         struct geom_rectangle bbox)

The code, charmap and font_id arguments are fontlib values specifying a glyph. font_size is the size of the font and bbox is the bounding box of the glyph, both in local coordinates.
