I've tried to compile Xft from fcpackage.02-06-03.01-31 from Keith's ftp site
without XRender as I believe it is only an XFree extension atm.
and As Xft.h is including <X11/extensions/Xrender.h> I believe this mean that
Xrender is required.

Keith, Owen, Am I right or wrong ?

Cool, I don't think GNOME needs another xml parser.
