Audacity - I bet you have to recompile wxgtk libraries too, because they
are linked to pango directly too:

$ ldd /usr/X11R6/lib/ 
[snip] => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x28b7c000)

Once you done with this, recompile audacity again.

Look around your system for another files linked against libraries in
/usr/local/lib/compat/pkg, especially pango. Use something like

find /usr | xargs -n 1 ldd | grep lib.compat.pkg

For Mozilla, I suspect this problem is unrelated to pango.

Because watching a cg enhanced Legolas fire a flaming arrow
into the heart of a warg is cool?
