Sorry... sent an empty msg by mistake.
In fact it seems I have libxft installed and it is detected by DrScheme:
$ grep -i xft config.log
configure:10961: g++ -o conftest -g -O2    conftest.cc -lcairo   -lGL
-lXrender -lXft -lXrender -lfontconfig -lfreetype -lz -lX11   -lcairo 
 -ldl -lm  -rdynamic >&5
X_EXTRA_LIBS=' -lGL -lXrender -lXft -lXrender -lfontconfig -lfreetype
-lz -lX11   -lcairo   -lpng -lz -ljpeg'

So, using libxft is the thing that's not working...
