libXft is the client side font rendering library, using libfreetype,
libX11, and the X Render extension to display anti-aliased text.

This release removes the deprecated xft-config script now that pkg-config
is well-established as it's replacement.   It also updates the xft pkg-config
file to reduce unnecessary linking in users of libXft, but may cause issues if
used with versions of pkg-config older than the pkg-config 0.22 release from

It also includes the usual recent set of build configuration improvements and
janitorial cleanups.
