Hereʼs what the file loading looks like from Xft's perspective:

XFT_DEBUG=16 LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/rpluim/repos/src/libXft-2.3.2/src/.libs/ 
./emacs -Q

Accoding to that bug, the solution is for the application to 'move
away from legacy Xft to fontconfig', whatever that means. I can say
that building '--without-xft' is definitely sub-optimal (the buffer
text isnʼt scaled, and Emacs doesnʼt find a font to display #x274c).
