libXft failure

Wed Apr 7 13:11:32 GMT 2004

Im REALLY lost now!

I am trying to upgrade qt, but this depends on libXft which will not 
compile from ports due to a lack of "xrender" and I have no idea where 
xrender might be.

Can you PLEASE help?

Why didn't the libXft port find/download/install xrender if it is so 

Docs as suggested by the "fail" message attached.
