 Long ago, xchat's text backend was switched from xft to pango by PR 20387.
 But when chat/xchat was update to 2.8.0 by reed@: (from commit log)
 > Configure with --enable-xft. (Hopefully that is okay with quark on Mac OS).
 Yes, it completely break with GTK2+Quartz on Mac OS :-<, X11-less.
 I asked to reed@ why it was switched to xft backend three months ago,
 but no respond yet.
 If there are any reason to use xft,  swith to --disable-xft on Darwin,
 or introduce xft option?
 But no reason, how about switch to --disable-xft on all platforms?
 (No need to specify --disable-xft, it is default value for xchat's configure).
