Check what configure is saying when you build R and config.log. You may be

I managed to compile it successfully with pango-cairo support by editing the configure script and adding the pangoxft module to the pkg-config list: %diff -c configure.bak configure
*** configure.bak 2011-05-31 16:16:55.000000000 +0200 --- configure 2011-05-31 16:17:21.000000000 +0200

I do not know if it is an error in the configure script or just a peculiarity of my installation. All these libs (pango, cairo, gtk, glib) have been installed manually from tarballs.
