I've been trying to build the head of the Abiword tree, and I ran into 
a problem.   This probably wouldn't affect a package build, but a 
non-package build without a buildlinks tree can't surmount it.   The 
problem is that while freetype 2 has its own include subdirectory - 
/usr/pkg/include/freetype2, freetype 1 does not.   This means that if 
there's a -I/usr/pkg/include before the -I/usr/pkg/include/freetype2, 
the freetype 1 headers get used in favor of the freetype 2 headers.   
And it turns out that pkg-config emits this exact sequence when I try 
to build Abiword.

So I think that the freetype 1 package should be modified to put its 
includes in /usr/pkg/include/freetype1.   For obvious reasons, I didn't 
want to just jump in and do it, but if this seems like a reasonable 
solution, I'd be glad to make it happen.
