Description

MPlayer currently uses to freetype-config to configure freetype. As mentioned in [1][2] this script will become optional and will not ship on at least Debian/Ubuntu/Linux? Mint/etc. Both auto-detection and --enable-freetype use freetype-config therefore it's likely that MPlayer would fail to compile whenever freetype 2.9.1 releases unless.

Agreed, we should support detecting libfreetype via pkg-config.

According to my tests this should be implemented with MPlayer SVN r38021 .

Would be nice if you could confirm.

Thanks for filing this report!
