The patch for #843837 is incorrect and no longer needed. The Debian 
motif maintainers patched configure.ac in August 2017 to use the correct 
cflags and libs for freetype2 at compile time.

Also note that the Freetype2 developers no longer recommend using 
    #include <freetype2/ft2build.h>
in source files (which was the intent of my patch). The following should be 
used instead:
    #include <ft2build.h>
    #include FT_FREETYPE_H

Developers would then use either freetype-config or pkg-config to 
obtain the cflags etc.

Kind regards,
