It all looks normal to me. Check your Installation and make sure that
you explicitly specified --with-xft=tabs,... (there were bugs in
configure; --with-xft=all and bare --with-xft didn't work for many
Also, if you can, try running xemacs under a debugger and use the
debugger's set command to set debug_tabs=3 before starting XEmacs.
This will produce a huge amount of chatter, so you don't want to run
that way for very long. But I think the information we need is
printed out during initialization, so probably you can just shut it
down after that.
I think you can just grep stderr for "^font: name=",
which should give the information we need.
BTW, I just committed a new node "Xft Font Configuration" (a subnode
of "Faces") to CVS. Next time you update and rebuild, take a look and
let me know what you think. Don't hesitate to mention things that I
obviously would have seen for myself, it will help to establish
