I'm trying to build jdk8 on Mac, cannot get past the configuration step.
First configure asked for X11, which I believe is not needed on Mac. I worked around with --x-libraries. Then it stumbled upon freetype, which it should not need either. I added --with-freetype, but it failed to recognise .dylib as the library suffix:
configure: error: Could not find libfreetype.so nor freetype.dll in /opt/local/lib
