AFAIR I followed the BLFS book.  Maybe I missed something there ... wow,
what happend to ... d'oh, X4.3.0, I used 4.2.1.  With mozilla, well, I
'merged' the hint for 1.2.1 with mozilla 1.3 and finally 1.4 (and now I
see, 1.3 is already in the book).

xft comes with X, doesn't it?  When did I install fontconfig?  What's
this 'Xrenderer'?  (Maybe I should stop this bad drug habit and start
writing down, what I do.  ;-) If I upgrade to recent version of X, would
it fix the haywire xft installation or crash my half system?  How to
remove the old X?  Wait, surely it's in the search.

Thank you very much,
 regards, Frank.
