"ilrun -M blah.exe" will tell you how many times each method is called.  That 
should give you some indication as to where the inner time-wasting loops are.

The C compiler system isn't really up to this task yet - not enough support in 
libc for it.  The Xft library uses freetype internally, and works OK on 
modern versions of X.  I suggest sticking with libX11 and libXft.  Font 
management is horrid no matter how it is done, and so we're better off using 
a standard interface.
