Good work. Sorry, I just wasn't going to answer directly for you,
though I was in the process of writing a response to guide you in that
As far as a missing dependency: Dependencies listed in BLFS are "build
time" dependencies. Occasionally, you'll see that runtime dependencies
are mentioned in the BLFS instructions. In this particular case,
pkg-config is neither required for build or needed at runtime for
FreeType so it is not mentioned on the FreeType page. That said, quite
a few packages do use pkg-config to determine how to find and use
already installed packages. You should also notice that freetype did
install a .pc file or two in /usr/lib/pkg-config, even though pkg-config
was not yet installed.
