Comment (by Mirko Roller):

 DOANLOAD:

 http://download.savannah.gnu.org/releases/freetype/freetype-2.2.1.tar.bz2

 OLD: FreeType-2.1.10
 NEW: freetype-2.2.1

 COMPILE:

 ./configure --prefix=/usr &&
 make &&
 make install

 Batchfile lib-7.1.wget needs an update:
 replace old entry libXfont-xxx.tar.bz2
 with: libXfont-1.2.2.tar.bz2

 Apllication fonttosfnt-1.0.1 from the app-7.1.wget batchfile needs an
 patch.

 tar xvfj fonttosfnt-1.0.1.tar.bz2

 sed -i 's@#include FT_INTERNAL_OBJECTS_H@//#include
 FT_INTERNAL_OBJECTS_H at g'

 fonttosfnt-1.0.1/util.c

 rm fonttosfnt-1.0.1.tar.bz2

 tar cvfj fonttosfnt-1.0.1.tar.bz2 fonttosfnt-1.0.1

 rm -rf fonttosfnt-1.0.1



 Thats all !


 In freetype-2.2.1 the Patented Microsoft? fontrendering is disabled. To
 get

 really good looking Fonts under X11, some more tweaks are needed.

 The improvement in Fontrendering is very strong, so i suggest it !


 This is the Patch for freetype-2.2.1 to enable it:
