   Thank you, I will try that.

   But now I am wondering if I an misreading the BLFS Book.

   That is, when I saw

XFree86 depends on:
freetype-2.1.3, expat-1.95.6 and libpng-1.2.5

in the BLFS Book, I tok it to mean that I had to install freetupe
before I installed xfree -- which I did.

   Now I notice there is a freetype2 source tree starting at


inside the xfree source tree, roughly 50% identical to the
freetype2 I have installed.

   Maybe xfree compiles this "internal" version of freetype2
and it is this internal version of freetype2 that conflicts with the 
freetype2 that I have installed?

   Hmm, well, I guess I am about to find out.

   Thanks again.
