I'm using Ubuntu Dapper. Both ft2build.h and ftheader.h are part of
libfreetype6-dev, but somehow ft2build.h doesn't know where ftheader.h
is... But in ft2build.h it says:

  /* "<prefix>/include/freetype2" must be in your current inclusion path */
   #include <freetype/config/ftheader.h>

So, somehow make doesn't have /usr/include/freetype2 in its include path...
