Description of problem:
[ ... ]
Xlib.h: No such file or directory
[ ... ]
Xutil.h: No such file or directory
[ ... ]
keysym.h: No such file or directory
Those files come from xorg-x11-devel, so freetype should depend on
this files or on the package xorg-x11-devel
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Try building freetype without xorg-x11-devel installed
Quite non-trivial to fix; it's no just a question of adding
the BuildRequires since there is a xorg BuildRequires FreeType
BuildRequires xorg loop.
You basically have to rewrite the make rules for ft2demos
so they can be build in a separate package.

Yes, I know this loop, I do have this problem currently, because I'm
trying to recompile the fedora development tree for my alpha ds10. :-/
Do we really need the ft2demos? If we do not, we could just kick 'em
out!? A seperate package would also make sense to me...
Certainly for a bootstrap, what you want to do is to hack
the freetype package to omit the ft2demos.
I don't want to drop them from the distro entirely because
they are pretty useful when I'm trying to debug a font problem
on someone's computer ... ftview allows separating out the
behavior of FreeType from all the stuff higher in the text
They can't be (easily) split into a separate package because
they are set up to only build when unpacked into the freetype
