What number is that ? I think its just an incident. I will file a JIRA bug
on this shortly .. but I had tried the patch yesterday and FWIW it doesn't
seem to remove "build" dependency on the system libfreetype ..
I don't think anything you did caused this because it would already fail
for me in the sanity check at the beginning but a complete fix would
address this too where it seems the ALT_ path is not making it through
to tools/freetypecheck/Makefile

dyld: Library not loaded: /usr/local/lib/libfreetype.6.dylib

Failed to build freetypecheck.

Exiting because of the above error(s).

Also did you try this in the old and new build systems ?

Finally, the way we build internally I guess our jprt and R/E builds of
openjdk on OS X (if the latter were tried at all) should be made capable
of using a custom freetype build. I think they can be ignorant of
this change for now, but without creating a build and making them use
it they will still spit out builds which rely on the system freetype
