this program that uses #include<ft2build.h>
compile with
gcc exp.c -o exp -L /usr/X11R6/lib -lX11 ?

gcc exp.c -o exp -L /usr/X11R6/lib -lX11 `freetype-config --cflags --libs`

This is the usual way to work with most free/open source software.

Also, you should include:


#include <ft2build.h>
#include FT_FREETYPE_H


As explained here.

FWIW, Xft(3) says:

NAME
Xft - X FreeType interface library

DESCRIPTION
Xft is a simple library designed to interface the FreeType rasterizer
with the X Rendering Extension. This manual page barely scratches the
surface of this library.


I suspect, therefore, that you'll need to use Xft if you want things like antialiased font rendering. I could be wrong though.
