I think we can be reasonably sure that if --with-freetype=/opt/X11 
works, then your fix is working.

I think your fix looks okay (apart from indentation but that might be 
Jira messing), but for formalitys sake I'd like you to send out a formal 
RFR. You don't need to create a webrev, the patch inline is ok.
