My mistake: my Intel X11 system does indeed have (a version of) the
libXft library. So that's not the explanation, apologies for the red
No, am I not setting DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH.
Seems like the problem lies with the SWI-Prolog installer -- some
incompatability with the OS X libXft, I gather.

Everything works fine on my PowerPC Mac, but when I try to run SWI-
Prolog after installing on my Intel Mac I get an error message:
Library not loaded: /opt/local/lib/libXft.2.dylib
Why does it look in /opt/local/lib? Did you set the
DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable? *Don't do this*. If you
feel compelled to do it, use DYLD_FALLBACK_LIBRARY_PATH instead.
It seems that the directory /usr/X11R6/lib has libXft on the
PowerPC Mac, but not on the Intel Mac. Yet both machines are
running OS10.4 and X11 1.1.3.
Has libXft been accidentally omitted from Apple's Intel X11
distribution? Is there a fix?
It has not been omitted, at least not in the X11 installed here on
my Intel machine. Sometimes, however, the Apple installer forgets
to install random files. Reinstalling usually helps then.
