Comment (by dnicholson at linuxfromscratch.org):

 I don't know the entire history here, but I think the problem is that
 there is a freetype macro ft_isdigit that's included in one of the
 freetype headers. The problem is "fixed" in libXfont-1.3.1 because the
 code which used ft_isdigit was removed. But this definitely should work
 with libXfont-1.2.8 and bdftopcf-1.0.1. Looking at bdftopcf, though, I'm
 not really sure how it manifested this issue, though.

 Any chance you can show the error building bdftocpf and let me know what
 versions of libXfont, freetype and bdftopcf were in use? I'm guessing that
 we might just need to kludge in an #include in libXfont to ensure this
 always works.
