You should use -version-info unless you need to keep compatible shared 
library versions for existing libraries.  Fontconfig was able to use 
-version-info because it's minor version number was zero, but Xft uses 
-version-number as it's version number is 2.1.

I'm no longer maintaining imake build mechanisms for Xrender, Xft, or 
fontconfig; one build system is plenty.

I'm pretty happy with how fontconfig is set up to use automake; Noah 
Levitt did Xft and Xrender, so he may have additional suggestions on what 
would make things even better.
