I think ".zip" file is designed for the systems using "\r\n"
for line separator, like, Microsoft Windows, Microsoft DOS etc.
Could you try ".tar.gz" source?

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

source: 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. Regards, Claude

Having issues with compiling and installing the Freetype2 package.

 Both commands, the "make" as well as the "jam install" are throwing
(see details below).
The standard incantation is

  ./configure <your options>
  sudo make install

It looks like you've missed the configuring step.  Say `configure
--help' to see possible options.

The Jamfile is mainly intended for Windows; it doesn't have an
`install' target, and you must move the created files manually.  [Jam
support is not maintained, unfortunately.]
