Hello all,

When emacs is compiled the following way:

   1. export CVS_RSH=ssh
      cvs -z3 -d:ext:address@hidden:/cvsroot/emacs co emacs
      cvs -z3 -d:ext:address@hidden:/cvsroot/emacs up -Pd -r
   2. cd emacs
      ./configure —prefix=/your/fav/place —with-gtk —with-xft
      make bootstrap
      make install
   3. /your/fav/place/bin/emacs –font “Bitstream Vera Sans Mono-10″

We appear to lose the boldface treatment when a *.tex file is loaded. I want to confirm that I'm not doing anything wrong here, before I file a bug. But even if I wanted to I would love to make sure whether this is a bug in emacs, gtk or X. Any inputs would be appreciated!

The XFT branch is just a proof of concept, but for full functionality it needs much more work and probably an integration with the Unicode-branch. As it is not going to be part of the next Emacs release, no work is being done until after the next Emacs release.
