if you already successfully build freetype according to the steps
given in your mail you can simply pass the path of the freetype build
output directory (i.e. the one where you find freetype.dll) with the
"--with-freetype-lib" option to configure. You should also use
"--with-freetype-include" to pass the path to the freetype include
directory (i.e. the one which contains freetype.h) to configure.
