Hello,

I just tried this myself and configure is automatically picking up my 
freetype from brew in /usr/local/opt/freetype/. Looking at my log, this 
is done using pkg-config from brew. So you could try installing 
pkg-config (brew install pkg-config). You can also try adding 
--with-freetype=/usr/local/opt/freetype if that's where brew installed 
it for you.
