Hi Devs,

if I am adding the option
--with-opengl=/usr --with-ftgl
to the following configure statement

/configure --with-wfsclient --with-wfs --with-wmsclient --without-tiff
--with-jpeg=/usr --with-ogr=/usr/local/bin/gdal-config
--with-freetype=/usr --with-png=/usr --with-proj=/usr --enable-debug
--with-gd=/usr/local --with-gdal=/usr/local/bin/gdal-config
--with-curl-config=/usr/bin/curl-config --with-threads
--with-httpd=/usr/local/apache2_ssl/bin/httpd --with-php=/usr/local/php5
--with-agg=/usr/local --with-geos=/usr/local/bin/geos-config 

I get the following error message while building mapserver:

-I/usr/include  -I/usr/include -I/usr/local/include
-Irenderers/agg/include  -I/usr/include -I/usr/include/FTGL/
-I/usr/include   -I/usr/local/include -I/usr/local/pgsql-844/include
-I/usr/local/include    -I/usr/include/libxml2     -c -o

renderers/agg/src/../include/agg_font_freetype.h:81: error:
‘FT_Encoding’ does not name a type

'Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden' means file or directory not

If I remove the option mapserver compiles fine.
I Am working on Debian stable (squeeze).

Thanks for any hints
