Freetype not being found by wine even when installed.

I have installed freetype 2 but whenever i run ./configure for wine it tells me that it is not found. I have it installed tho.

This is what the configure log records for freetype:

configure:10355: checking for FT_Init_FreeType in -lfreetype
configure:10385: gcc -m32 -o conftest -g -O2 conftest.c -lfreetype -L/usr/lib64 >&5
/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/lib64/ when searching for -lfreetype
/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/lib64/libfreetype.a when searching for -lfreetype
/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/lib64/ when searching for -lc
/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/lib64/libc.a when searching for -lc

How do i go about fixing this?

You have freetype2 installed, but do you have freetype2-devel installed? To compile software, devel packages are needed.
