Mozilla 1.5 and Slackware 9.1

I am trying to compile mozilla 1.5 in slack 9.1, but I get the following error in compile (I have freetype2 installed already). Also, when I download the binary, Mozilla runs with no glitches but the font is smaller and blurry as opposed to mozilla firebird to where the font is crystal clear. Duing the compile i enabled xft but after recompiling for the third time I still get this eror. Any thoughts on this?
