I'm not convinced about that, seel below.

Sorry, but something doesn't make sense here. My interpretation of the
above dependences is:

1.) You need at least freetype2 version 2.1.8 to compile this.
2.) You need at least freetype2 version 2.4.7nb2 to install the package
    you have compiled.

Mac OS X's "freetype2" only meets the first requirement. So you end up
with a package which you cannot install.

So I think that "BUILDLINK_API_DEPENDS" must always be greater or
equal to "BUILDLINK_ABI_DEPENDS" for any package.

        Kind regards
