I found the root of this problem, spicec is linked with -lCEGUIBase,
and /usr/lib/libCEGUIBASE.la have

dependency_libs=' /usr/lib/libfreetype.la -lz -lpcre -lfreeimage -lGLU -lGL'

but libfreetype.la is in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu,

Change dependency_libs to /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libfreetype.la can
let spicec be compiled successfullly.

I've report this bug to Debian[1]
