The freetype library shared lib has bumped it's major library
number. How should dependent packages then check for freetype-lib?
If it's just:
then a binary package built with freetype-lib-1.3.1 will "match"
dependencies against freetype-lib-1.2.1, but will fail to work since
it has the wrong version of the freetype library. Should all
dependent packages now be changed to use:
so that binary packages work correctly?
