fontconfig mess

Hey group,

Has anyone had problems with fontconfig?  I just installed X-4.2.1 last
and then tried to install gnome-2.x using the cvsgnome script.  This
has worked many times before, however it is crapping out now.  I had a
pain in the arse to get fontconfig to install.  When I untarred the
tarball there are a few directories.  I managed to get fontconfig,
Xrender, and
Xft to install.  However, Xft1 won't build for me : (  Now cvsgnome
crapps out
on libgnome saying it needs pangoxf2.  Pango installed however, it did
install it's libpangoxf2 or pangoxf2.pc stuff.  I installed pango before
and it compiled and installed fine sans the pangoxf2 stuff.  Trying to
pango after the half arse attempt at fontconfig ends with the pango
build failing.

Does anyone have any tips, etc on getting pangoxf2 up and running?
