You describe the expected current behavior, I think.
In the default freetype-demo way of building, after build, before install,
"bin/xxx" is a libtool script which loads the binaries within "bin/.libs/" with
set to dynamically load the latest freetype shared library from
If you run the binaries in "bin/.libs" directly, you pick up your older
system-wide freetype shared library
instead. There is probably no reason for running bin/.libs directly though
by-passing the libtool script,
unless you are trying to generate statically linked binaries to the latest
freetype - which I'll describe further below.
If the current behavior isn't what you want, you could either do "make install"
to install to a location of your choice
(after setting --prefix appropriately) both the latest binaries and the latest
shared library; alternatively
disable shared library building in ./configure'ing freetype.
With the latter, "bin/xxx" would be statically linked binaries instead of
libtool scripts, and there would
be no "bin/.libs" sub-directories.
I might be somewhat inaccurate in some of the description above, but I think
that covers how I knows

Subject: [ft-devel] ftview version output issue
Dear Freetype Developers,
compiling the ftdemo of version 2.7 as described in the
readmes I have the following issue:
Executing the following command in ../bin/
$ ./ftview -v
Outputs: ftview (FreeType) 2.7
Executing the same command in ../bin/.libs/
Outputs: ftview (FreeType) 2.6.3
Do you know if I just compiled something wrong? Or is the
ftview wrapper script outputting the correct version and the
