Hi folks, 

I am getting the following error when attempting to build 1.1.5a2 on Fedora 
Core 2. 

running build_ext
building '_imagingft' extension
gcc -pthread -fno-strict-aliasing -DNDEBUG -O2 -g -pipe -march=i386 
 -mcpu=i686 -D_GNU_SOURCE -fPIC -fPIC -IlibImaging -I/usr/include/freetype2 
 -I/usr/include/python2.3 -c _imagingft.c -o 
_imagingft.c:19:24: <ft2build.h>: No such file or directory
_imagingft.c:20:25: FT_FREETYPE_H: No such file or directory
In file included from _imagingft.c:22:

been included yet!"
/usr/include/freetype2/freetype/freetype.h:21:2: #error "Please always use

/usr/include/freetype2/freetype/freetype.h:24:2: #error "  #include 
error: command 'gcc' failed with exit status 1 

I have added <ftbuild.h> and FT_FREETYPE_H to _imagingft.c, with zero joy.
