No, with. XFree86 comes with freetype 2.02, I want to use 2.04 which is also
packaged seperately. I managed to build X now with replacing
xc/extras/freetype2 with the updated 2.04 and copying some headers over to
it. Now I don't want to have two of the same packages installed in different
places so I am looking for a way for X to use the allready installed one. I
looked at xc/config/cf/linux.cf and debian has a rule to use a shared
library, but that rule bombs out on me. The reason I wanna do this is that
some X programs link to the X version and others to the standalone version.
I just want one library for all of them! :)
