Untar'ed ok, used configure find for fontconfig and Xft2.
Was able to build Xrender fine using xmkmf, make and make isntall. All OK.
Could not compile Xft using xmkmf... the resulting make file had an include
for freetype2 of /freetype2
I got around this by doing two things:
- first, found an old freetype include directory in /usr/X11R6/include (came
with XFree86?) renamed it out of the way to freetype.ORIGINAL
- put link to the freetype include directory in /usr/X11R6/include/freetype2
Then ran xmkmf, and fixed the line in the resulting Makefile that assigned
TOP_X_INCLUDES as blank -> TOP_X_INCLUDES = /usr/X11R6/include
make and make install then ran without error...
now to test the resulting build...
Conclusion... the make file maker cannot handle an installation that had
freetype on it earlier.
Hope I am right, and hope this helps.
Oh, this was with the 2.1 package, FYI... could not choose it from version in zilla.
I'm hoping to migrate Xft to autoconf in the near future; that will make this
whole mess go away.
