It doesn't look like it. I've just tested with fontconfig, without Xft2 ->
pango finds fontconfig, doesn't find Xft2, finishes up with:

  backends:  FreeType X

fontconfig, luckily, is the easy bit. :-) Xft2 is a bit harder without
XFree86 4.2... Not good for users on other platforms.

I'd give the option of downgrading pango, but I'm not sure how pango 1.0.5
will satisfy libgnomecanvas' need for pangoft2.
