[HarfBuzz] chicken-and-egg problem with FreeType

I just want to give a heads-up that FreeType now links to HarfBuzz
even in non-devel mode; by default, it links only to it if it can be
found.  In case both FreeType and HarfBuzz need to be installed, you
have to first install FreeType, then HarfBuzz, then FreeType again.

Would be nice if this chicken-and-egg problem could be resolved
eventually :-)  Behdad, do you have already some ideas?
