   |  Please try again, drochner committed changes to pango that might help 
 No luck, same result.
 If it matters, while I updated pkgsrc (and got the pango update that
 you refer to i that), pango itself was not rebuilt (it didn't get
 a revbump for that update, so I assumed that pango itself wouldn't
 be affected, just its file for others to use).
 And I should have included this (the actual error) the last time - but the
 way I was building everything made it difficult then (for these 6.99.12
 amd64 packages I'm not using pkg_comp as I usually do, just doing live
 installs on a running system, with output in an xterm, so by the time I
 confirmed that simply building & installing Xft2 fixed the problem, the
 error message was long gone ...
 But what happens is ...
 ===> Creating toolchain wrappers for seamonkey-2.12nb4
 ERROR: Xft2>=2.1 Xft2>=2.1nb2 is not installed; can't buildlink files.
 *** Error code 1
 And sure enough, Xft2 is not installed (I pkg_deleted it).  What's more
 after that, after this build of seamonkey failed (I suspect xulrunner
 would fail the same way, but didn't test that again) I reinstalled seamonkey
 from the previously build binpkg, but completly forgot Xft2, (pkg_add
 didn't just add it as a dependency either, it really didn't get reinstalled)
 and seamonkey still worked fine - ie: it doesn't seem to really need Xft2
 at all (and from what I read in the last couple of days about font
 handling - reading for another reason altogether - I wouldn't expect
 it to, Xft2 seems to be old technology, mostly replaced now (in new fancy
 apps anyway), and I'm a little surprised that pango refers to it at
 all - which it still does, even after drochner's recent change).
