It may work - not really tested by me.

I am afraid that there is some other braindamaged piece of software that does 
not look at freetype-config. But, since I did not use the system zlib when 
compiling freetype, I cannot detect this right now. Maybe xpdf? Its 
'configure' script does not call freetype-config.

Maybe it is only my problem, but nevertheless. I suspect that freetype 
configuration should be also available via pkg-config, but this is not so on 
my computer because I (wrongly) installed pkg-config after freetype. a) how 
do I get pkg-config working with freetype? b) what about zlib in that way of 

Also, since I am too lazy, what does ldd freetype-from-CVS.so output?
