Hi,

When using xft with hinting enabled and certain fonts, rxvt-unicode displays
a large gap between font glyphs.

The attached patch taken from ArchLinux fixes this issue.

I have tested it myself with success and I now enjoy from a really nice
looking terminal.

Thanks for considering this patch for the next upload, and thanks for your
work.

Cheers,
Julien

All binaries are affected, not only the -256color variant.

The latest version of libxft 2.3.1-1 triggers again this old bug, probab
ly becasue of new hinting tricks. See https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_
bug.cgi?id=47178
