Unfortunately not.  Everything looks correct, AFAICT.

Can you tell me what's in the dependency_libs variable of
/usr/pkg/lib/  It's empty in my system, and although
I can't reproduce your problem, this looks very wrong.  (Specially
because if I build pango manually, dependency_libs has contents, and it
lists Xft as a dependency, as it should.)

To buildlink people: is this the expected behavior in .la files?
