[Fontconfig] Qt 3.2.3, Xft, and Solaris 8

I've compiled qt on Solaris 8 with Xft support, but I'm having the same
problem as detailed in this post:


As in that post, GTK2 apps use anti-aliased fonts correctly, while 
QT apps do not. The qtconfig app shows that I have them enabled by 
default, yet they simply are not used/rendered. Turning on and off
aliasing in qtconfig/kcontrol has no apparent effect.

Interestingly enough, when I log into a Mandrake 9.1 machine, remote 
login to the Solaris machine, and run KDE apps remotely, the fonts 
*are* anti-aliased properly, and I can turn on and off aliasing
in kcontrol and see the difference. So, I know the Solaris apps are
compiled correctly, it just seems there's some unknown factor preventing
the rendering of AA fonts in qt/kde on openwin.

Does the fact that openwin on Solaris 8 doesn't support the Xrender 
extension  have anything to do with it?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
