So pango's working for you now? I can't get it to compile, although in
my case, the error is:

ld: cannot find -lfreetype

I'm running XFree86 4.3.0 from March 5 2003 (one of the snapshots on
either or; I do have fontconfig.pc
in both /usr/pkg/lib/pkgconfig and /usr/X11R6/lib/pkgconfig, but I do
not have freetype2.pc in the latter. /usr/pkg/lib/pkgconfig/freetype2.pc
is present, iff I have the pkgsrc freetype2 package installed. I've
tried building pango both with and without the freetype2 package, with
same results either way. I do have /usr/X11R6/lib/

The problem is that my work.i386/.buildlink/lib directory doesn't have
a symlink to, but I don't know what's supposed to
create it, and why it's not being created.

My pkgsrc is current as of Feb 23, kernel and userland are from Feb 22.
