  . As a prerequisite (documented in the README) the user must compile
    the `base' version of FreeType manually so that a DLL gets
    created.  This should *not* be handled automatically.  And no need
    to install them.
  . Similarly, the `test' version of FreeType should be built with a
    simple call to `make'.  Again there should be no need to install
  . The user should then specify the `base' FreeType `.so' file using
    a variable, say, `FREETYPE_BASE_DLL'.
After compiling both the libraries, I am doing this in objs/ folder.
    libtool --mode=install cp /home/ksvsk/working-repo/tests/make_png/test/
And using the .so file generated in the test/ folder.
Similarly doing this for the 'base' version as well. 
I am getting the correct result.
Is this what is needed to be done ?

How to build the FreeType library in 64-bit ?
I've applied the above patch but there is no lib64/ directory.
Another issue: I think `base' and `test' must be reversed, at least in
`': `base' is the old, previous version and `test' the current
Yeah, the actual usage is like this. 
For now as the older version has errors,So I put this (old version) as test. 
 Rendering modes should be names, not numbers – please adjust your
 `sprite' program accordingly. 
What should be the names for the LCD rendering modes ?

Tried again from scratch, to no avail.  Strange.  Attached is my log
file.  I've simply unpacked `freetype-2.6.5.tar.gz' in `/home/wl',
checked out the `kushal-work' branch in
`/home/wl/git/freetype/freetype2.kushal', applied the patch from my
previous e-mail, changed into the `test/make_png' directory and called

  sh /home/wl/freetype-2.6.5 test.ttf 20 1 &> log

Attached is the log file.

I'm quite sure if `sprite' would be more verbose, the problem could be
identified more rapidly...
