Re: Sawfish broken when built without Pango

So it adds a new option, not the fix of the problem. Thanks. Chris, 
could you take care?

I guess it's autotool issue. (I don't know much about that.) What does
the output of configure say?  For example, mine is:

checking for libXRandR... yes
checking for libXft... yes ***
checking for libX11... yes
checking for libICE... yes
checking for libSM... yes
checking for PANGO... yes
checking for PANGOX... yes
checking for PANGOXFT... yes ***
checking for LIBREP... yes

Ok, libXft and PANGOXFT are there.

Probably you can revert to the fixed font, as a workaround. For example,
(define-special-variable default-font '("xlfd" . "fixed"))
in ~/.sawfish/rc works.
