    I don't understand. I'm looking in the folder that it's looking for Xft and it's there. I'm not sure why the installer can't find it when it's actually there

    Actually, now that I check it, ld doesn't look in /usr/X11R6/lib unless you tell it to explicitly. The question is why the KDE makefile doesn't.
    Does anyone know if there's a config file that you can use to change ld's default lib dirs, or do you have to change it in the make file?
