This patch may be applied, ans spec should be fixed.
I'm wondering why your patch is for 2.0.1 when 2.0.3 is what is in
RC2? Are you using an older freetype?
Yes, patch was created for 2.0.1 long time ago, but it may be applied to 2.0.3
I have looked into this more deeply, and the patch that you are proposing
is for Freetype pre1.4, not for Freetype 2 at all.
What appears you are wanting, are the freetype "demos" programs. Those
do not ship currently with Red Hat Linux, however I have planned on adding
the demos, and have included them in the src.rpm even though they do not
currently build in it. I will add a new subpackage "freetype-demos" which
contains these executables in the freetype 2.0.4 release.
The freetype-2.0.4-2 package now contains a "freetype-demos" subpackage
which contains these programs. It has been added internally to rawhide.
