Problem building JDK 8

Some of you may know that we try to test Groovy builds against the
latest versions of the JDK. For that, we have setup a CI build of
OpenJDK 7, 8 and 9. However, the JDK 8 builds have been failing for
several months now (sorry I didn't have much time to investigate this
specific subject, so I rely on EA builds instead, which gives us late
but valuable feedback).
Basically, in the JDK 8 build log (JDK 9 doesn't have the issue), I can
read this in the logs:
[02:00:17]: [Step 1/2] configure: error: Could not find freetype!
You might be able to fix this by running 'sudo apt-get install
However if I try to do so, I see that freetype *is* installed:
# apt-get install libfreetype6-dev
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
libfreetype6-dev is already the newest version.
The server is running Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS, which gcc 4.8.2, which is
supposed to "work flawlessly" from what I read here:
We build from http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk8u/jdk8u
Thanks for your help!
