[HarfBuzz] (noob?) Building HB

Looking at the Makefile.am in the utils directory, I see things like
hb_view_SOURCES = \
bin_PROGRAMS += hb-view
which suggests that hb-view (for example) won't be built unless configure has found glib, freetype and cairo_ft. Your log indicates these were not found, hence the utility is skipped.
(You probably have the libraries on your system already, but need to install corresponding -dev packages in order to provide the headers for building code that links to these packages.)
