problem with RRDtool configuration

hello, i am trying to ./configure rrdtool-1.2.12 and i am getting this error :

checking for png.h... yes
checking for FT_Init_FreeType in -lfreetype... yes
checking ft2build.h usability... no
checking ft2build.h presence... no
checking for ft2build.h... no
checking for pkg-config... no
configure: WARNING:
* I could not find a working copy of freetype2. Check config.log for hints on why
  this is the case. Maybe you need to set LDFLAGS and CPPFLAGS appropriately
  so that compiler and the linker can find libfreetype and its header files. If
  you have not installed freetype2, you can get it either from its original home on

  You can find also find an archive copy on

  The last tested version of freetype2 is 2.1.9.

       LIBS=-lpng -lz -lm 
  CPPFLAGS= -I/usr/include/freetype2

now i have freestyle-2.2.1 installed, and the ft2build.h header file is found in
should i make any additional switches to the ./configure command, and if yes which please?

Distro: FC3
