Xft current requires the Xrender library to build and run, but doesn't 
require the Render extension within the X server.  fcpackage includes the 
Xrender library for systems not yet providing that.

Nope; the goal is to build a package that can compile and run on every 
system.  Of course, as with any new package, that will take help from 
people with systems that I can't test against myself.  In particular, I 
don't have access to machines that don't have XFree86 (oddly).
