Hi Harald,
Always a pleasure to read your kind comments.
You might be an experienced coder, I’m not. I’m a video editor trying to make peoples life easier.

What was unclear to you about me stating that I am trying to alter the script?
Besides, from what I read is that for Linux you have an OPTION to do full static, where on OSX its ALWAYS full static.
(And that seems to be the case, except for the mentioned issues.)

So, what do I need to do more then to add —enalble-libfontconfig —enable-libfreetype?
