Source: wine
Version: 1.6.1-2
Severity: serious
Justification: fails to build from source (but built successfully in the past)
Control: retitle -2 wine-unstable: FTBFS w/freetype 2.5.1: FreeType development files not found.

Builds of wine(-unstable) with freetype 2.5.1, which recently landed
in unstable, have been failing:

  checking for -lfreetype... libfreetype.so.6
  checking for ft2build.h... yes
  checking for freetype/freetype.h... no
  checking for freetype/ftglyph.h... no
  checking for freetype/fttypes.h... no
  checking for freetype/tttables.h... no
  checking for freetype/ftsnames.h... no
  checking for freetype/ttnameid.h... no
  checking for freetype/ftoutln.h... no
  checking for freetype/ftwinfnt.h... no
  checking for freetype/ftmodapi.h... no
  checking for freetype/ftlcdfil.h... no
  checking for FT_TrueTypeEngineType... no
  configure: error: FreeType development files not found. Fonts will not be built.
  Use the --without-freetype option if you really want this.

Wine's configure script evidently failed to anticipate the layout
changes ft2build.h promised.  In particular:

  /*   - The contents of `freetype-2.x/include/freetype' will be installed */
  /*     to `/usr/local/include/freetype2' instead of                      */
  /*     `/usr/local/include/freetype2/freetype'.                          */

Could you please take a look?
