HI there,

some time ago, someone spoke about a bug in the install script of the
Freetype2 package.

The problem lies in tha fact that, in the build/unix/
makefile, the $(INSTALL_DATA) expands to "install", which means that
each time the line is read, it DOES NOT executes /usr/bin/install but
rather calls recursively the "install" target, which results in an
infinite loop.

The clean way to correct it is to change the definition of INSTALL_DATA
and INSTALL_SCRIPT in the file (if I remember correctly)
from "install" to "/usr/bin/install" and everything will be fine.
