Thanks, Wayne.

I knew that header was needed (from the same problem with Thunderbird).

I didn't know where to include it.

Will fix also Thunderbird (remove the workaround) and probably Seamonkey. Tomorrow morning.

Bruce, please, would you test Seamonkey?

OK, I'll do SM. I've started a complete new build, but it's going OK. I've got X up. I then need to do XFCE and then I can try SM. Probably I'll be able to do it Monday.

I've confirmed that the following fixes the issue:

sed -i '/^ftcache.h/a ftfntfmt.h' config/system-headers

Thanks, that was great, Wayne!!!

Thanks, Bruce. The same sed (below, not above) fixes TB and SM, most certainly.


sed -i '/^ftglyph.h/ i ftfntfmt.h' mozilla/config/system-headers

fixes Thunderbird and, almost certainly also, Seamonkey.

Statistics change very little:

Estimated disk space required: 3.8 GB (72 MB installed) - previous 3.9 73

Estimated build time: 8.5 SBU (with -j4) - previous 8.7

Also, with in-tree-freetype did not use harfbuzz, and looked strange. Now, it has a more familiar look (RE icons).

This last observation may finally answer a question by Ken to me, ages ago (if you don't know already the answer, Ken): it looks good using freetype built with harfbuzz support, i.e., it is worth to go the circular dependency.

Summary: Firefox 38.0.5 won't build with FreeType 2.6Firefox-38.0.5, SeaMonkey-2.33.1 and Thunderbird-38.0.1 won't build with FreeType-2.6

Just confirmed problem and solution with Seamonkey.

Changing the title, for future searches sake.
