[PATCH] Freetype Directory Bug On zLinux

Hi All,

On zLinux, freetype's .so file is typically installed in 
/usr/lib/s390x-linux-gnu, however the generated configure script doesn't 
look for it there.

This causes configure to fail. I know you can avoid that with options, but 
I think a fix would be better.

If we add this code to lib-freetype.m4 (line 365) and re-run autogen.sh, 
this fixes the problem.

if test "x$FOUND_FREETYPE" != xyes; then
   if test "x$OPENJDK_TARGET_CPU_ARCH" = xs390; then
[$FREETYPE_BASE_DIR/lib/s390x-linux-gnu], [well-known location])


Best Regards
