This tiny patch enables the Render extension, which
allows image compositing and antialiased text.
Previously, render was compiled in to XDarwin but it
wasn't actually initialized.

This hasn't been completely tested. xterm has render
support, but I haven't been able to convince it to use
it. `x11perf -aa10text` (and other tests) uses render,
and it seemed to work fine yesterday, but today
XCreatePixmap is failing with a BadValue 0x20 for some
reason; this may be a temporary glitch in the cvs code.
I haven't found any other apps that use render except
monsters like kde and gnome which I don't have time to
build.

    An equivalent patch is now part of fb and Render support in
    XFree86 CVS.
