Unfortunately this needs to be done together with the rest of modular
X11R7, because xft.pc requires xproto.pc and xrender.pc.

You will also need a postinstall script which does the following:

find /usr/lib -name '*.la' -exec sed -i -e \
's#/usr/X11R6/lib/libXft\.la#/usr/lib/libXft\.la#g' '{}' +

This is necessary because anything .la file linked against the previous
libXft will require to be in /usr/X11R6/lib, and if it's not
there, you will get an error linking with libtool.
