I didn't have any old freetype-lib versions to get rid of, and I'm getting
that problem when trying to pull in the dependencies for graphics/dia...

/usr/pkgsrc/graphics/freetype-lib/work/freetype-1.3.1/lib/arch/unix/../../extend/ftxsbit.h:229: syntax error before `TT_Int'

The offending line reads:

227:  typedef struct  TT_SBit_Strike_
228:  { 
229:    TT_Int                num_ranges;
230:    TT_SBit_Range*        sbit_ranges;
[...] there anything wrong with trailing underscores in struct names?!?!
Was something supposed to be macro'ed into that struct name?
