Unless you have XFree86 4.0.2 installed (not in 7.0), Pango should not
be looking for this file. If have the devel packages for XFree86
installed, it should be there.

If you don't have 4.0.2 or newer installed and you get this error,
please file a bug report on with details.

It's not a private header. Ask Keith Packard if you don't believe me.
