pangoxft not linked by gtk+-2.8

I am trying to compile gtk+-2.8.7 and it won't link against pangoxft. There are
no checks for pangoxft in the configure script, I presume this is intentional.
Is there some magic to get gtk >= 2.8 with xft support?
gtk+-2.6.7 compiles with xft support (ie links libpangoxft.so) on the same

I've installed the 2.8.7 prerequisites, and pango did link against Xft:
$ pkg-config --modversion glib-2.0 pango pangoxft atk

I've googled and searched the gtk mailling list, I can't find any reference to
Xft support being dropped, hidden or changed in gtk+ >= 2.8
What obvious thing am I missing here?

P.S. I am not on the list, please CC me on replies.
