      Description

      JDK configuration fails on out of the box system even after installation of required packages. It tries to look for freetype library in x86_64 path.

      # apt-get install libfreetype6-dev
      # bash configure
      ....
      configure: Found freetype include files at /usr/include/freetype2 using well-known location
      configure: Could not find /usr/lib/libfreetype.so. Ignoring location.
      configure: Found freetype include files at /usr/include/freetype2 using well-known location
      configure: Could not find /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libfreetype.so. Ignoring location.
      configure: error: Could not find freetype! You might be able to fix this by running 'sudo apt-get install libfreetype6-dev'.
      configure exiting with result code 1

      Workaround: Link or copy libfreetype.so to other known location, e.g. /usr/lib
      Cross-compilation works if .so is in /usr/lib in sysroot.
