mythtv configure thowing out incorrect error

hi i have just been installing mythtv on my dual boot and as usual errors come out the first one i fixed the second one is just strange...

it says freetype is not installed and mythtv cant be installed without it
so i fire up the mandriva package manager and find freetype and guess what...
its installed and mythtv still does it whats gone wrong??
its mythtv 0.21
mandriva one 2009
lucky i have vista dual booted with it so i can use win media center

Freetype is installed, but is freetype-dev ? dev packages are what you would need when compiling something..

user@it-lenny:~$ aptitude search freetype
p   freetype2-demos        - FreeType 2 demonstration programs                                                       
i A libfreetype6           - FreeType 2 font engine, shared library files                                            
p   libfreetype6-dev       - FreeType 2 font engine, development files
Is there a specific reason you didn't just install mythtv using the Mandriva RPM's from the PLF mirrors ? Compiling is so much work when you don't really need to do it..
