I think I had another xft-config in /opt/... without actually having 
libXft and friends in the path that that script pointed to.  I have 
uninstalled those test packages now (which were modifying the PATH 
through profile.d scripts) and the rebuild of 185-4 seemed to find 
libXft and friends just fine.
