Comment (by ken@…):

 I suggest discussing this sort of problem on the -dev list!

 My initial thoughts are that if you upgrade, either the library is
 compatible and existing (already-compiled) users will link to it, or
 alternatively it is a new version (unlikely) and they will still use the
 old one.

 For the headers, with mine installed to
 /usr/include/freetype2/freetype, so I guess it has lost the redundant
 directory.  In theory, everything should be using a sane approach to find
 the headers, but I'm sure some packages will have issues.  If so, those
 packages need to be (conditionally) fixed.
