By associated packages, do you mean the -devel packages?

Freetype2-devel should have in it libfreetype6 - it certainly does under

As the configure script couldn't find libfreetype >= 5, this problem
could be down to this. Then again, it might not - without seeing the
output of the configure script (unless it was the one above), it's hard
to diagnose.



One OS to fool them all
One browser to find them

And through security holes, blind them...
