Description Roland Mainz 2004-03-12 06:00:54 UTC
It seems that today's XORG-RELEASE-1 tree does not build on (SuSE 8.2)

The following hack works around the problem:

One solution would be to add a way to statically link with the freetype version
in the tree and make that the default (this would also get rid of the (very
unfortunate) situation that old FreeType2 library versions are buggy - which
affects the quality and stability of the resulting product).
Comment 2 Egbert Eich 2004-03-15 06:13:06 UTC
On SUSE 8.2 you either need to update freetype or use 
#define HasFreetype2 NO 
to build the version that's in the tree. In this case the version it the tree
will be linked into the libfreetype.a module statically.
