Description of problem:
After today's updates, firefox fails to start for me.  

I'm running latest rawhide, targetted/enforcing, but this fails in both enforcing and permissive modes (and no messages in audit.log or messages).

I also tried getting rid of my .mozilla directory to no avail.

I installed the 'new' cairo package (so I have both cairo-0.6.0-2 and cairo-0.9.2-2 installed).

Mozilla runs fine.

output of 'strace /usr/bin/firefox' attached.....

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to start firefox

I can confirm the problem. Executing

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/firefox-1.1 ./firefox-bin

results in the following error:

./firefox-bin: symbol lookup error:
/usr/lib/firefox-1.1/components/libgfx_gtk.so: undefined symbol:
Comment 3 Sammy 2005-08-17 14:41:21 EDT
Yes. I fixed this for 1.0.6 on rawhide using the latest cairo/pango. Some reason this   
particular so is not linking with libpangoxft. Something with pkgconfig. I added  to  
one of /usr/lib/gdk-2.0.pc or /usr/lib/gdk-x11-2.0.pc the Requirement for  pangoxft 
and recompiled. 
Something needs to be fixed in these dependencies.

Starting firefox with this commandline works for me:
