The very latest in svn should compile, it has the missing files  
(although in unic/src not Cross). Make sure you reconfigure to pick up  
the new files after updating.

What exactly is broken with Pango? If so it's indeed my fault to not  
having passed on the fixes (I sent patches to Ian last week but I may  
have missed something).

The olpc branch is about to be retired - it has served us as a faster- 
paced development playground, but now that we  switch from invention  
mode to maintenance mode, the trunk is the better place for things to  
live on.
