NOTES
       FreeType  uses macros defined in <ft2build.h> to provide #include paths
       for its other header files.  Installation paths for headers may  change
       between  versions,  but  the  macros will be updated to use the correct
       path.  The Header File Macros page of the FreeType API  Reference  pro-
       vides a list of these macros and further details on their usage.

       See  the FreeType API Reference for details on the thread safety of the
       various API calls, including details on which data structures  must  be
       protected by a mutex if used in multiple threads.
