Re: [ft-devel] about freetype-1.3.1
A few exchange with Giant, we could build libttf.a,
so I post a short summary to cross build freetype-1.3.1,
for search engine users :-).

configure in freetype-1.3.1 tarball is not ready for
cross building. to recreate configure supporting cross
buidling, commenting-out "AC_REQUIRE([AC_PROG_MAKE_SET])"
and executing autoconf again is enough.
However, in this case (target is arm-linux-uclibc, not
arm-uclibc-linux) config.sub could not recognize target
system name. small fix is required for config.sub aslike:

I think it's enough to build libttf.a. Unfortunately,
test programs (like ftdump) are not ready for cross
build. Anyway, I wish people to migrate to FreeType2,
as Werner wrote.
