Yep, that's bug #1749251.

None of the core maintainers use FreeBSD or NetBSD (apparently),
so some assistance is needed to fix this. It's almost certainly
an easy fix, just need someone to help test it.

Could you answer a few questions at:

In particular, I'm looking for the output of `pkg-config --cflags xft`,
and the generated Makefile.

If you advise where I can pick up 8.5a7, (I can only find 8.5a6 at I'll configure and gen the makefile on both for you ... BTW: 8.5a5 compiles/links just fine on FreeBSD 6.1R
