libpangoxft in source tarball?

when I try to start abiword (and a number of other programs) from the fluxbox menu, nothing hapens. when I type the command "abiword" into rxvt, i get the message:

[quote]abiword: error while loading shared libraries: libpangoxft - cannot open shared object file: no such file or directory.[quote]

i think this means that i need "libpangoxft", (i already have libpng-1.2.5 installed from a slack, TGZ file).

Does anyone know where to get "libpangoxft" in source or TGZ form? cause im in slack and I dont have, nor do I want to have RPM.
