No, it isn't.  That's just what prompted us to look at this.

When Ian C told me offline about this embedded copy of figlet I said

We certainly shouldn't be carrying a hacked up version of figlet in
the Xen tree.  If there are systems without figlet then we should make
its use conditional, as suggested.  Those systems' users can then
(a) install figlet by hand (b) live without figleted banners (c) get
this apparently useful utility into their distro.
