And found that you'd attacked it before I got to it… but your version didn't work if harfbuzz is present and Xft isn't. I've fixed that up and pushed it (42e01e32), and successfully built pango against both the 10.4 and 10.5 SDKs. Yay.

So my remaining question is should I set up Gtk-OSX to build HarfBuzz for 10.5 and later? Put another way, does HarfBuzz improve font appearance with CoreText? What about FreeType?
