due to some issues, reportlab-3.6.9-paths.patch was added to dev-python/reportlab, disabling in setup.py the logic to find freetype includes and directly setting FT_INC_PATH to /usr/include/freetype2
but now reportlab fails to emerge in prefix if the host happens to not have installed the freetype devel packages
unsure how to solve this cleanly; i did it by "inherit distutils-r1 prefix" and, at the begin of src_configure(), "use prefix && hprefixify -w '/FT_INC_DIR=/' setup.py"
Please share a build.log & emerge --info of a failed build.

reportlab-3.6.x and the patch that didn't work in prefix patch have been dropped from tree.
