exactly what should *not* be expected. There shouldn't be any
assumptions where the base DLL is located.
Maybe I wasn't clear enough, so I'm trying again.
. Compile the base FreeType version in directory
`/home/kushal/freetype2-base'. After compilation, the .so file
can be found as
. Compile the test FreeType version (i.e., current git) in directory
`/home/kushal/freetype2'. After compilation, the .so file can be
. The glyph image tests should now
be run with something similar to the following
kushal/freetype2-base/objs/. libs/libfreetype.so.6.12.5" \
FREETYPE_TEST_PT_SIZES="12 15 18" \
FREETYPE_TEST_MODES="aa mono" \
Of course, there is no need to explicitly specify the second DLL
because `make tests' can find it by itself.
