Heads up folks.  

The next release of RedHat is not supporting Xft 1

See RedHat bug # 67775

Amaya needs configure mods, and possibly other changes, to
find and use Xft2 header files.

We don't support compilation with Xft1 for the next version of Red Hat.

Programs that use Xft2 need to find out the compilation flags for Xft
by running "xft-config --cflags" or "pkg-config --cflags Xft".
