Thanx, boss!

I think I found what was missing in the Gentoo ebuild, and I may have
reported correctly on the Bugzilla:

Dillo ebuild is missing xft flag for fltk, causes eye-sore
https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=554588

I tried to give credit where it was due, and you can find Walter Dnes
name in the bug report above ;-) .

Because this triggered my understanding,[...]

[...]and the snippet of the dawning conversation can be found on:

Cheers!

On another note, still wrecking my nerves: it's a real torture accessing
and posting bugs.gentoo.org with my current setup or with the something
missing in dillo. It sure will take me time to really figure and deploy
on my Gentoo the ebuilds in my local overlay with the current mercurial
code (slowly making progress there too), so only then I'll know if the
issue has been fixed in it...

Just, in case anyone could see any reasons for the thousands per minute
cookies.dpi lines as described in my Grsecurity Forums Dillo topic:
