[FFmpeg-devel] freetype2 2.5.1 configure incompatibility

Since freetype 2.5.1 they changed headers hierarchy:

    Applications that use (a) `freetype-config' or FreeType's
    `pkg-config' file to get the include directory for the compiler, and
    (b) the documented way for header inclusion like

      #include <ft2build.h>
      #include FT_FREETYPE_H

    don't need any change to the source code.

unfortunately ffmpeg configure script doesn't provide
a way to pass an include without <> and the check always fail

looks like the only one file needs freetype is:


#include <ft2build.h>
#include <freetype/config/ftheader.h>
#include FT_FREETYPE_H
#include FT_GLYPH_H

inclusion of freetype/config/ftheader.h is not needed (it's in ft2build.h)
I suppose it would build fine then, but configure script need to be adapted.

Any idea about a possible solution?
