[Fontconfig] qt, xft problems...

I am running on a Solaris 8 box (Ultra sparc).
I have compiled render, xrender, freetype2, xft, fontconfig (all latest
versions). Everything appears to be working great -- I have compiled gtk apps
and have nice anti-aliased fonts visible. I also have compiled Keith's
waterfall app in his CVS area -- and it works great too, I can see many fonts.
I moved on to compiling qt, as a step towards getting all of KDE anti-aliased.
Everything compiled fine, no errors (configured with the -xrender and -xft
options, and it gave the proper feedback)... get none of qt's apps are
showing anti-aliased fonts, and when I use the font selector in qt designer
(for example), my copious quantities of fonts are not listed (the true type
fonts that I added). It would seem qt (3.1.2) isn't getting ahold of xft
correctly, though ldd shows it correctly linked in. AA boxes checked in both
qtconfig, designer font prefs. Also have useXft=true in my ~/.qt/qtrc
Am I missing something simple here?
please cc me in your responses, as I am not on the fontconfig list.
