		X FreeType library

Xft version 2.1 was the first stand alone release of Xft, a library that
connects X applications with the FreeType font rasterization library. Xft
uses fontconfig to locate fonts so it has no configuration files.

Before building Xft you will need to have installed:
	libX11, libXext, & libXrender
