In order for Pango to find Xft, the PKG_CONFIG_PATH must include /usr/X11R6/lib/pkgconfig. This is a good time to add it if you haven't already. You can utilize the example for X.sh to create a script for modifying this variable located in the section The Bash Shell Startup Files.
Install Pango by running the following commands:
./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc && make && make install
--sysconfdir=/etc: This switch installs the configuration files into /etc instead of /usr/etc.
--enable-gtk-doc: This switch will rebuild the API documentation during the make command.
