Thanks Werner and Toshiya for your quick reply. See below the error message
from the configure shell that comes with the original .zip distribution: 

zbra:/opt/python/freetype2/freetype-2.4.6 # sh ./configure
: command not found5:
: command not found7:
'/configure: line 73: syntax error near unexpected token `do
'/configure: line 73: `  for x in "$@"; do

72 if test $# -gt 0; then
73  for x in "$@"; do
74    case x"$x" in
75    x--srcdir=*)
76      abs_ft2_dir=`echo $x | sed 's/^--srcdir=//'` ;;
77    esac
78  done
79 fi

This might me the cause of the problem, as the configure shell stops with a
syntax error. 

Any insight or idea how to fix it is welcome.
