no, no it doesn't. When you rebuilt cairo with the changes, did it
build you a pkgsrc Xft2/libXft to go along with the pkgsrc fontconfig
and freetype? It didn't for me.
Similarly, from cairo:
valkyrie% make show-var VARNAME=USE_BUILTIN.fontconfig PREFER.fontconfig=pkgsrc
valkyrie% make show-var VARNAME=USE_BUILTIN.Xft2 PREFER.fontconfig=pkgsrc
(note that cairo uses libXft by default; it's in options.mk)
If you explicitly set USE_BUILTIN.fontconfig it's different:
valkyrie% make show-var VARNAME=USE_BUILTIN.Xft2 USE_BUILTIN.fontconfig=no
because the reason it doesn't work is, as I noted, that builtin.mk
files aren't included in tree order.
Also, even if it did work, you'd still get the ancient Xft2 package;
as best I recall it is in pkgsrc for use only with pre-modular X11, so
probably it wouldn't work and possibly it wouldn't even build.
