On MacOSX configure doesn't set $LIBS correctly (-L without argument):

+ eval echo 'configure:4247: "$CC -o conftest$ac_exeext $CFLAGS $CPPFLAGS $LDFLAGS conftest.$ac_ext $LIBS >&5"'
++ echo configure:4247: 'gcc -o conftest -g -O2   conftest.c -lttf  -L -lm  >&5'
+ ac_status=1
+ echo 'configure:4250: $? = 1'
+ exit 1
+ echo 'configure: failed program was:'
+ cat conftest.c
+ ac_cv_lib_ttf_TT_Init_FreeType=no
+ rm -f conftest.o conftest conftest.c
+ LIBS=-L -lm 
+ echo 'configure:4267: result: no'
+ echo no
+ test no = yes
+ echo 'Fatal: libttf.a not found'
Fatal: libttf.a not found
+ exit 1
+ exit_status=1

If I do it by hand with
cc -o conftest -g -O2   conftest.c -lttf  -L/usr/pkg/lib -lm
it compiles, but coredumps when run:

spock# ./conftest

BTW, after 'pkg_delete -R freetype-1.3.1nb1' I lost my libttf.a. I had to
reinstall freetype-lib-1.3.1nb1. So I guess it magicpoint needs a dependance
on it?
