Bug#884769: RFS: freetype/2.8.1-0.2 [NMU]

Hi Adam and Gianfranco,

Steve accepted almost all of my NMU changes last Friday, when he released a maintainer version of freetype.

So this RFS bug can be closed.

Thank you for your advice during the process.

Okay, I'll start filing bugs to encourage the use of pkg-config to detect freetype2.
IIRC, some of the 33 already use pkg-config for other packages.

We should keep trying, but I don't want to pressure him to respond.

On another note, when should I prepare an NMU fixing #883698 (an RC bug)?
I'd also like to try removing the libdir code from freetype-config to make the package
multi-arch compatible.
