Hi there,
            I was trying to enable libfree type with ffmpeg so i installed
freetype also but when i configure ffmpeg with '--enable-libfreetype' It
gives me an following error:

Package freetyp2 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Parhaps you should add the directory containing 'freetype2.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'freetype2' found
ERROR: libfreetype not found

If you think configure made a mistake, make sure you are using the latest
version from Git. If the latest version fails, report the problem to the
ffmpeg-user at ffmpeg.org mailing list or IRC #ffmpeg on irc.freenode.net.
Include the log file "config.log" produced by configure as this will help
solving the problem.

Please help!

Anup Yadav.
