Okay, I'm running Slackware 8.1. The patch applys cleanly to beta4. You have
to do a:

aclocal && autoheader && automake -a -c && autoconf

to regenerate the ./configure script and all that weird
autoconf/automake/whatever stuff. Then the ./configure failed. It turns out
that Slackware doesn't have a 'xft.pc' for 'pkg-config' to read, so I made one
and dropped it into /usr/bin/pkgconfig


Name: Xft
Version: 1.1
Description: X font stuff
Libs: -L${libdir} -lXft   
Cflags: -I${includedir}/Xft

Warning: I don't know what I'm doing here, I just looked at the pkg-config
manpage and took the libxml.pc file and modified it as required. Hint: "locate
-i xft" to find all the Xft files laying around to figure out what to set the
prefix to. This file probably won't work with other distros.

Then it compiled and works fine. But I like "7x13Bold" better, so I switched
back to normal ratpoison.
