A perl GD application is returning an error to me stating that libgd is not compiled with freetype
Currently libgd 1.8.3-r6 and freetype 2.1.2-r2 are installed. When I look at the ebuild for libgd
it seems to me that libgd is configured to look for freetype 1.3*.
It seems there are a lot of issues with these libraries. Php has similar problems. What can be
done to fix this? How can I help?
Reproducible: Didn't try
Steps to Reproduce:
will post update soon
ok, the old version of libgd defaulted to freetype-1.x ... i changed the ebuild
so you now have the choice of freetype-1.x or freetype-2.x ...
sooooo if you want freetype-2.x support (the good stuff, YEAH it is), just put
global USE flag 'truetype' in your USE var ...
buuuuuuuut if you *really* want freetype-1.x support (for some reason), just put
the local USE flag 'ttf' in your USE var ...
