The build instructions for Imaging 1.1.5 dealing with Freetype2
support are unclear. I have attempted to follow the instructions in
README and setup.py, but some requirements seem glossed over, and my
attempts to guess at interpretations have failed.
Instruction #3. The Python installation is a fresh framework build,
but no filenames including "python-devel" are found. What does
"probably" mean? What does "or similar" mean?
Instruction #4: I do not seem to have a Python extensions
directory. What would be a "suitable directory"?
Instruction #5: What does "in-place" mean? How can I tell if
Freetype is properly installed?
setup.py documentation: what would be "well-known library location"
for Freetype2? What would a directory that is an appropriate value
for FREETYPE_ROOT contain?
Any clarification is welcome.
