I can confirm that cmake doesn't find freetype when configuring
kde-workspace 4.11.3.

-- Could NOT find Freetype (missing:  FREETYPE_INCLUDE_DIRS)

and then further down

-- The following OPTIONAL packages have not been found:

 * Freetype , A font rendering engine , <http://www.freetype.org>
   Needed to build kfontinst, a simple font installer.

I'll rebuild cmake with patch from Archlinux and see how it goes.

Note: My last name is not Krejzi.
