The CVS archive doesn't contain pre-built configuration scripts for
UNIXish platforms. To generate them say
which in turn depends on the following packages:
automake (1.9.6)
libtool (1.5.22)
autoconf (2.59c)
The versions given in parentheses are known to work. Newer versions
should work too, of course. Note that also sets up proper
file permissions for the `configure' and auxiliary scripts.
A very common problem is that this script complains that the `aclocal'
program doesn't accept a `--force' option:
generating `'
running `aclocal -I . --force'
aclocal: unrecognized option -- `--force'
Try `aclocal --help' for more information.
error while running `aclocal -I . --force'
This means that your version of the automake package is too old.
Please update it before trying to build FreeType.
For static builds which don't use platform specific optimizations, no
configure script is necessary at all; saying
make setup ansi
should work on all platforms which have GNU make (or makepp).
