x11/Xrender expects pkgconfig/render.pc:
checking for render >= 0.8... Package render was not found in the
pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `render.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'render' found
But it is not symlinked in buildlink directory.
I have render package installed with its render.pc. I guess I could
remove it because ...
I have xorg-libs installed to /usr/X11R6 directory but it doesn't have
render.pc (but does provide render).
If I remember correctly, xorg doesn't provide the render.pc yet because it
isn't considered stable yet.
Should we have an option for Xrender to be built and offered by xorg-libs?
Or should x11/Xrender be fixed to work even if render.pc is missing?
