Hi,

I found the new freetype (>=2.1.6) could break quite a number
of packages:
http://studio.imagemagick.org/pipermail/magick-bugs/2003-December/001573.html

I noticed the issue today while packaging fltk .Since the
include method for freetupe is changed, the ports should be upgraded
or patched.
Ie: possibly affected ports are imagemagick, wine.
Xft and related ports are a problem as well since xft it's linked to
freetype.

I only tested fltk and imagemagick, I can confirm that
on my machine freetype2/xft are dubbed unusable by the configure
scripts.

Quite a mess, uh?

Simone
