It looks as if the cause lies in incompatible versions (of
libraries), most probably Xft2, and here C header and PC files. I'll
retry a build later tonight with the updated extra files removed.

Hi Peter,

Was this resolved?

No, not really. I'd have to change some statements in the Makefiles to make ld bind the binaries to particular libraries (most probably statically) and haven't yet used my spare-time to investigate on this topic, copy good examples from other software. Besides, maybe I am the last one who tries to compile up-to-date software on an old set of soft- and PPC hardware. Apple's Tiger, Mac OS X 10.4(.11), is now four or five years old, the 'recent' Mac OS X 10.5.x, Leopard, is going to be superseded by Snow Leopard, Mac OS X 10.6, any day now...

Since I am sure that this is the reality (not a 'buggy' software from GNU/FSF) I am a bit reluctant and rather pay attention to not xkill GNU Emacs.

        The perversity of nature is nowhere better demonstrated
        than by the fact that, when exposed to the same atmosphere,
        bread becomes hard while crackers become soft.
