I cross compile freetype from linux too, for both win32/win64 and darwin (mac
os X). Every few months. It is not that hard, once you set it up to scriptable
For Mac OS X, I chose not to have harfbuzz as I don't strictly speaking need
the extra functionality it offers (currently). For win32/win64, as I outlined,
the dynamic freetype dll is linked to a static harfbuzz.
What I found tricky is not harfbuzz itself, but what it brings along: - glib,
iconv, etc. You need to choose which you want to disable to avoid the
maintance/upgrade burden. I actually don't build harfbuzz itself, but just take
the win32/win64 binaries what fedora offers. I choose not to bother but keep
notes on which binary release packages my freetype was built against.
