gtk-2.8.7 - missing pangoft2 in configure

I'm not sure if this is a gtk bug or a pilot error, but I had difficulties
configuring gtk-2.8.7; and in particular there appears to be a missing
reference to the pangoft2 library.

After I installed, cairo-1.0, pango-1.10.1 , glib-2.8.4, and atk-1.10.1 on
my semi-customized FC3 box I attempted to configure gtk-2.8.7, but
encountered this failure:

checking Pango flags... -I/usr/local/include/pango-1.0
-I/usr/local/include/glib-2.0 -I/usr/local/lib/glib-2.0/include
-I/usr/local/include/cairo -L/usr/local/lib -lpangocairo-1.0 -lpango-1.0
-lcairo -lgobject-2.0 -lgmodule-2.0 -ldl -lglib-2.0
configure: error:
*** Can't link to Pango. Pango is required to build
*** GTK+. For more information seehttp://www.pango.org------------

After some poking around I determined that configure failed to include
pangoft2. I didn't see any specific gtk-2.8.7 configure options for
customizing pango, so I dove write into the gory configure script and
changed line 31537 from

PANGO_PACKAGES="pango pangocairo"


PANGO_PACKAGES="pango pangocairo pangoft2"

and the problem was solved.

Note, I didn't attempt to re-run autoconf, etc...
