Hello and sorry for tuning in late...
I have several sample programs and quite a bit of documentation about Xrender,
its model and how to use it written up for my students (mostly in german
though); if you are interested I can collect and tidy them up (when I asked
last time on this mailing list there was zero interest apparently)

Actually "simple" text rendering without Xft isn't that bad, for example:
uses just freetype and Xrender and is as minimal as it gets (unless you want
to provide your own glyph shapes, in which case you can also ditch freetype);
maybe this suits your purpose
