#4383: libXft fails to build with current Freetype2
 Reporter:  chris@…      |      Owner:  blfs-book@…
     Type:  enhancement  |     Status:  new
 Priority:  normal       |  Milestone:  current
Component:  BOOK         |    Version:  SVN
 Severity:  normal       |   Keywords:
 The latest version of Freetype2 (2.5.1) changed the location of its
 headers to ${prefix}/include/freetype2. One effect of this is that libXft
 won't compile, as it is not able to find the Freetype headers. I found a
 patch for this here - http://trac.macports.org/ticket/41578  - then turned
 it into a standard {B,}LFS style patch.
