This really should be on blfs-dev, this is mostly auto generated status
Note: HasFontconfig YES, means we already have it
/* These settings ensure we use our libraries ************************/
#define HasFreetype2 YES
#define HasFontconfig YES
So if you did not install the separate version, change to NO.
if you have any suggestions, move to blfs-dev.
