$ xft-config --cflags
-I/usr/include -I/usr/include/freetype2 -I/usr/X11R6/include

Even with it installed, if I remove the /usr/include/freetype link, I get:

checking X11/Xft/Xft.h usability... no
checking X11/Xft/Xft.h presence... no
checking for X11/Xft/Xft.h... no
no Xft headers; Xft support disabled
