Oh, I'm sorry. Then you already know all of that of course :)

I'm curious why pango-1.30 wasn't released when gtk3-3.2 was released?
We could just go for it if you find it stable enough.

I'll take a look at them (and then at your question :) ).

Have any major shlib versions changed? I.e. has any libfoo.2 become libfoo.3?
(we don't care about libfoo.2.1 to libfoo.2.2.)
If yes, we need a bump. If no, not.

The patch was committed with the following message:
revision 1.18
date: 2009/11/22 19:14:41;  author: sno;  state: Exp;  lines: +18 -12
Adding some patches to get it a bit further compiled with Sun Studio
Without commiting so far I couldn't check progress over the week - sorry
for the extra noise.

I see that the bug is fixed in the meantime. Perhaps a pkgsrc/Solaris
can test if the devel/pango/patch-aa is still needed. Hans, could you
please do that?

I'd also put the option-specific ones in

CoreText seems old enough (following Matthias Rampke's email).
