How to build the freetype2 library on VMS

It is actually very  straightforward to install the Freetype2 library.
Just  execute from  the toplevel  directory to  build the
library.  This procedure currently accepts the following options:

  Build the library with debug information and without optimization.

  Options to pass to the link command e.g. lopts=/traceback

  Options to pass to the C compiler e.g. ccopt=/float=ieee

In case you did download the demos, place them in a separate directory
sharing the same toplevel as the directory of Freetype2 and follow the
same  instructions as  above  for  the demos  from  there.  The  build
process relies on this to figure the location of the Freetype2 include

To rebuild  the  sources it is necessary to  have MMS/MMK installed on
the system.

The library is available in the directory


To  compile applications  using  FreeType  2 you  have  to define  the
logical FREETYPE pointing to the directory


i.e., if  the directory in which  this INSTALL.VMS file  is located is
$disk:[freetype] then define the logical with

  define freetype $disk:[freetype.include.freetype]

This version has  been tested with Compaq C  V6.2-006 on OpenVMS Alpha
