Hi all,

I am trying to install fontconfig-2.2.0 on my RH 7.3
linux box. when i first tried compiling it, i was
getting the following errors ...

fcfreetype.c: In function `FcFreeTypeQuery':
fcfreetype.c:279: `PS_FontInfoRec' undeclared (first
use in this function)

I have installed freetype2 already. So then I changed
a few directory paths in the Makefile to
/usr/local/lib(and include) since freetype2 and its
include files are in /usr/local. I tried make again
but now I get these errors...

../src/.libs/libfontconfig.so: undefined reference to
../src/.libs/libfontconfig.so: undefined reference to

It's really frustrating as to why this is happening.
i've been grappling with this for almost 2 days now to
no luck. could someone please bail me out of this
problem ...i really need to get started on my work and
not waste time on this..

Thanks in advance,
