I'm also considering turning off Xft (with --with-xft=no) in the
ebuild that I want to move to the main Gentoo repository shortly.
XEmacs without anti-aliased fonts looks horrendously ugly, IMHO, and I
can't think of an application that doesn't use anti-aliased fonts.
Maybe vi? (OK, OK, cheap shot, I retract the slur.)
I use Xft all the time, and have done so with both 21.4 and 21.5, but
I use non-standard configure options:
$ ./configure \
Note (unless these have been fixed): "--with-xft=yes" does not do the
same as what I use even though it appears to, and "--with-gtk" doesn't
do anything, which is why I haven't included it.
A caveat: Although I get anti-aliased fonts with the above, I don't
always get the fonts I specify. Bold fonts, in particular, are
problematic, and show up larger than they should.
