Just to be sure I'm understanding of the implications are correct :
- pango has now a full dependency on fontconfig.
(As a side question why is fontconfig using expat instead of libxml)
- pango has now a full dependency on xft.
(which in turn as a dependency the XRender extension)
(by full dependency I mean configure stop if fontconfig.pc and xft.pc
are not present on the system).
So this mean effectively mean that pango will only work on XFree, right ?
If so is there a way/plan to make these dependencies conditional to make
pango and therefore all GNOME 2.0 applications work on other X servers ?
(Yes, you are right, I'm thinking about Sun's X Server).
