Problem building JDK 8

It's a mystery.  My own successful config.log snippet with latest jdk8u is
below.  Why didn't your config.log contain "checking for FREETYPE"?  Maybe
a pkg-config problem? Are you doing something crazy like defining
LD_LIBRARY_PATH? Someone will need to debug configure, perhaps using bash
-x configure...

configure:31477: checking for cups/ppd.h
configure:31477: result: yes
configure:32103: checking for FREETYPE
configure:32110: $PKG_CONFIG --exists --print-errors "freetype2"
configure:32113: $? = 0
configure:32126: $PKG_CONFIG --exists --print-errors "freetype2"
configure:32129: $? = 0
configure:32164: result: yes
configure:32181: checking for freetype
configure:32183: result: yes (using pkg-config)
configure:34567: checking if we can compile and link with freetype
configure:34592:  /usr/bin/g++-4.8 -o conftest  -I/usr/include/freetype2
  conftest.cpp  -lfreetype >&5
configure:34592: $? = 0
configure:34594: result: yes
configure:34653: checking if we should bundle freetype
configure:34658: result: no
