Just in case this is useful information, I'm using FreeType version 2.1.4 both on OS 9 (non-Carbon), compiled with CodeWarrior (IDE, and on OS X (Carbon, Mach-0), compiled with XCode 2.1. I haven't had time yet to update to a newer version of FreeType. For CodeWarrior, I just included the necessary Freetype source files directly in the project, rather than make a separate library. For OS X, I made "libfreetype.a" with "make" at the command line.

Excuse me, please let me ask fundamental question: MPW or CodeWarrior
are required to compile ftmac.c?

Not necessarily. It depends on your target OS and runtime environment
ABI. If you want OS 9 (CFM) then you need MPW or Codewarrior. OS X can
run CFM (MPW/Codewarrior) or Mach-O produced by gcc or Codewarrior?
(not sure, I don't use Codewarrior).

There are 3 building control files
in FreeType tree:

* freetype2/builds/mac/freetype.make    is for MPW

MPW is a shell with makefiles but the makefiles are different from Unix.

* freetype2/builds/mac/ftlib.prj    is for CodeWarrior
* freetype2/base/Jamfile        is cross platform,
                    but ftmac.c is quoted for MPW

Not sure here either. I think Jamfiles were used in ProjectBuilder some
time ago, that means OS X/gcc -> Mach-O environment.

Could I compile ftmac.c via UNIX style configure/make process?

Yes, but only on OS X targeting Mach-O.

Hope this helps, Christian
