Configure(still?) broken on OS X

There was a recent thread about JDK-8145206: Configure broken on Macosx

I just attempted to bulid jdk9 on OS X 10.11.2 and configure failed with:

configure: error: Could not find freetype!
/Users/me/dev/openjdk9.common/autoconf/ line 82: 5:
Bad file descriptor

Checking README-builds.html I see that Freetype is listed as something that
is needed for Linux and Solaris, but not Mac OS X.

What is broken, configure or the System Setup instructions?
