I'm only querying these because they seem to be rather drastic changes...  ;-)

After some further digging I came across this entry in Bugzilla:-

It looks as if the previous (dynamically loadable) modules have been abandoned
now and everything gets built into pango statically.  As a result (presumably)
there's no need for the previous lib directory, or sysconf directory, or the
config files (pango.aliases etc?)

Is that a fair summary of the new situation?  (I must admit, it seems like a
good improvement !!)

Correct.  I forgot to announce the change on the mailing list, but tada:
config files, dynamically loaded modules, modules in general, pango.modules
file, config directories, all gone...

Pango is a single-file relocatable library now.  Enjoy!
