Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2004-03-22 20:43:09 EST
xrender.pc is created by GNU autotools when building libXrender
from the upstream sources outside of an XFree86/Xorg build, however
it is not created (never has been) when Xrender is built by Imake
inside the X build tree.

I've done some very ugly hacks in the past to try to accomodate
xrender.pc (and xft.pc also), but they're not very reliable, in
particular when these libraries get updated.

The best solution for this problem, will be when we split Xft
and Xrender out into their own separate packages.  Possibly for

Please see http://www.kde.gr.jp/~akito/patch/fontconfig/xft-2.1.1/ for

Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2004-03-22 22:12:46 EST
I'm not quite sure how the patches at the URL in comment #2 relate
to the xrender.pc file missing, however if there are any enhancements
for Xft which you'd like to see included, please submit the patches
directly to the upstream Xft development by filing an enhancement
bug report at http://bugs.freedesktop.org against the Xft component.

Once your enhancements are accepted by the upstream Xft developers
and included in an official release of libXft, it will eventually
appear in a future Red Hat Xft build.

"when we split Xft
and Xrender out into their own separate packages." - Please add
makebold patch.

Already bug reported :

I'm sorry that my comments isn't proper. 
Comment 5 Mike A. Harris 2004-03-22 22:44:53 EST
I won't add the makebold patch referenced above to our libXft,
as that would make it differ significantly from upstream libXft, and
the support maintenance burden for libXft would then fall entirely
on Red Hat.

However, if the makebold patch is considered safe and sane by the
upstream Xft developers, they might include it in a future release
of libXft.  If that happens, then this feature will be included in
a future Red Hat OS release once we integrate the upstream libXft
into the distribution which contains this new feature.
