Try building without Pango....

You shouldn't even have to rebuild it even. Just set the MOZ_DISABLE_PANGO environment variable. For example, open a terminal and run:

$ firefox

That will prevent Firefox from using Pango for that run.
(If you want this to be permanent, you can add the export to your login scripts such as your ~/.bash_profile or similar.)

Yay for runtime-switchable components. \o/
