Looking at freetype.h, we have:

#ifndef FT_FREETYPE_H #error "`ft2build.h' hasn't been included yet!" #error "Please always use macros to include FreeType header files." #error "Example:" #error " #include <ft2build.h>" #error " #include FT_FREETYPE_H" #endif

If we just removed this or commented it out and added #include <ft2build.h>

when freetype is installed, it would fix the problem for all the packages that use it. Any objections?

The freetype developers deliberately added that to force dependent packages to rectify how they include freetype headers. I don't think we should reverse that.
