if we aren't using / returning the awtFont C object we should free
(delete) it before returning
to avoid a leak in this theoretical situation.
The object has only just been allocated and doesn't have any clean up
that needs to be
done besides calling its C++ destructor.
[NB sending to awt-dev, not 2d-dev since this C++ Windows-specific class
is used only to
support Composite Logical Fonts on AWT GDI heavyweights .. ]
