     void vcl_string_init (struct vcl_string *obj, const char *string,
                           uns charmap, int font_id, real font_size,
                           const struct geom_rectangle *bbox)

string is a string of glyph codes (in UTF-8), charmap and font_id are fontlib values specifying the font and interpretation of glyph codes from string. font_size is the font size and bbox is the bounding box of the string, both in local coordinates.
