Seems to be working indeed. How does this impact existing suckless

ST never had any workarounds regarding this iirc (though the FAQ should
probably be updated). As for DWM/Dmenu - does it make sense to guard the
workaround with an preprocessor version check?

        #if XFT_MAJOR < 2 || XFT_MINOR < 3 || XFT_REVISION < 5
                /* workaround */

Just removing the workaround entirely might be an option as well with
the assumption that if someone is running updated dwm/dmenu they should
have an updated libXft as well.

But I suppose there are plently of people that build suckless software
from source but install libraries from distro package manager (which may
be outdated depending on the distro policy).
