[kde-solaris] xft2 fontconfig ... solaris 9

I have found two interesting problems.
I have compiled kde 3.1.2 with fontconfig/render/xft for solaris 8
This works nice and I get beautiful fonts.
But, there are two problems:
a) When running on an xserver which DOES NOT have a colormapped
visual (eg a blade 100 without creator) the programs do not
work, they segfaults.
b) When running such a program on Solaris 9 with the latest XServer
patches applied I have render extensions in the xserver. There
the effect is, that most of the characters in the interfaces
I guess a) has todo with qts xft support ... Because when kde is
compiled without qt/xft all works fine
Problem b) seems to be related to the way qt deals with render
extensions. Because gtk-demo compiled against the same xft2 release
works just fine, both on sol8 with an old xserver and on sol9 with
the render xserver.
