@Thaodan: I orphan the package, because I don't have time to update it... And I don't play this game anymore. Feel free to fix it.

The dependencies of this package still aren't clean and pollute the chroot in case of clean chroot builds. The package is called freeciv-sdl2 but you package the other clients too. I would suggest to split package each client at least.

Simplest workaround this freetype bug? Just migrate to SDL2.

The problem still persist. The package is broken

I get an error about missing a missing freetype package which is actually installed:

checking for FreeType -- version >= 2.1.3... no
configure: WARNING:

  The freetype-config script installed by FreeType 2 could not be found.
  If FreeType 2 was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
  your path, or set the FT2_CONFIG environment variable to the
  full path to freetype-config.

configure: error: specified client 'sdl' not configurable (FreeType2 >= 2.1.3 is needed (
$ pacman -Q freetype2
freetype2 2.9.1-1

Edit: Okay, maybe you should incorporate the change at

Any idea how to fix this?

sdl_gfx sdl_ttf is needed, gtk2 is not always installed

debian itself is gtk dependent, you won't put "linux" or "gcc"/"gcc-libs" on a package dependency array. You could, but it's a waste of time because they are included with the system installation

Hmm, the debian freeciv-sdl package doesn't have any gtk depencys.
