Description William Breathitt Gray 2020-12-10 11:53:40 UTC
Some fonts (e.g. media-libs/noto-emoji) requires freetype with png support enabled in order to display properly in web browsers and other applications. Adding DEPEND="media-libs/freetype[png]" to the cairo ebuild should resolve this issue.

See for why this was not added in the noto-emoji ebuild.

Reproducible: Always
