Pango Building Error

Hello, all. I run Red Hat 9 and I've been trying to upgrade to GNOME 2.6, but I've run into trouble. I've been following the order of installation: When I get down to libglade, I get this build error (not configure error):

/usr/local/lib/ undefined reference to `FT_Stream_GetShort'
/usr/local/lib/ undefined reference to `FT_Stream_ExitFrame'
/usr/local/lib/ undefined reference to `FT_Stream_GetLong'
/usr/local/lib/ undefined reference to `FT_Stream_Seek'
/usr/local/lib/ undefined reference to `FT_Stream_EnterFrame'

I decided to try to rebuild Pango, but then I ran into these errors when I tried to build (again, not a configure error):

otlbuffer.c: In function `otl_buffer_ensure':
otlbuffer.c:32: warning: implicit declaration of function `FT_REALLOC_ARRAY'
otlbuffer.c:32: parse error before "OTL_GlyphItemRec"
otlbuffer.c:34: parse error before "OTL_GlyphItemRec"
otlbuffer.c:36: parse error before "OTL_PositionRec"
otlbuffer.c:27: warning: unused variable `error'
otlbuffer.c:22: warning: unused variable `memory'
otlbuffer.c: In function `otl_buffer_new':
otlbuffer.c:51: warning: implicit declaration of function `FT_ALLOC'
otlbuffer.c: In function `otl_buffer_free':
otlbuffer.c:92: warning: implicit declaration of function `FT_FREE'
otlbuffer.c:90: warning: unused variable `memory'

I found one place with Google that had to do with this at but nothing else. I don't understand what to do, even after reading that webpage. Help, anybody? Thanks.

I used to get similar FT_xxx problems. I got it to work by upgrading my 'freetype' library and 'fontconfig' program. Maybe this helps for you too?

Good luck
