        Description

        The fact that there are no standard binary packages of freetype available on windows is one of the few remaining annoyances when building the OpenJDK on Windows.

        It turns out however, that it is relatively simply and needs just a few seconds to build the required libraries from the freetype source ball during the configure process.

        This change will introduce a new configure option "--with-freetype-src" which builds the required freetype libraries into <freetype_src>/lib[32|64] and sets "--with-freetype-lib" and "--with-freetype-include" automatically.

        Later builds can than simple use "--with-freetype-lib=<freetype_src>/lib[32|64]" and "--with-freetype-include=<freetype_src>/include".
