Actually, it is exactly the case a friend has, and I am asking this
question for him because he is a bit busy. He is working on an
installer for Windows. But it seems that the design of his installer
makes difficult to resolve the circular dep with the 3 steps mentioned

so if Freetype2 supports the extraction of harfbuzz source code and
build it, it would indeed solve his problem
