Well it's late and tired, but i put this here anyway.

I solved my problems and got Xft/Xrender to work with these rather simple
commands (XFree 4.1.0 from offical precompiled tarballs from

My prefix for gnome ist /opt/gnome-cvs and for normal XFree ist /usr/X11R6

xmkmf -DProjectRoot=/opt/gnome-cvs
mkdir -p /opt/gnome-cvs/include/X11/extensions
cp render.h /opt/gnome-cvs/include/X11/extensions/render.h
make STD_INCLUDES="-I. -I/usr/X11R6/include/X11/extensions"
gcc -o ./ -shared -Wl,-soname, Xrender.o Color.o Composite.o Cursor.o Glyph.o Picture.o FillRect.o FillRects.o Poly.o Trap.o Tri.o -lc -L/usr/X11R6/lib -lXext
make install

This is not easy to figure out for people that are happy to know enough about
auto* to solve such problems but I think it's easy to follow. The gcc line was
needed for some reason because else i get unsolved symbols later on.

Now just point out how stupid this is, maybe we get some information into the
mailing list that is really useful for all the testers.
