Perhaps it's because of this change:

        * xftfont.c
        (xftfont_open): Call XftFontMatch.

I still don't know why that makes change, but while reading
the source code of Xft, I found that Xft implements
XftFontOpen, XftFontOpenName, XftFontOpenXlfd by calling
XftFontMatch before calling XftFontOpenPattern.
