I think something changed in Arch side with FreeType2 package since the last time I built ResidualVM with this PKGBUILD on Mar 8, The Longest Journey Engine won't build with configure not finding FreeType2.

WARNING: Disabling engine The Longest Journey because the following dependencies are unmet: FreeType2

I tried fiddling with configure file and even replaced it with the old one quickly, but FreeType still can't be find or I'm doing something wrong.

I'll take a deeper look when I'll be back, but wanted to drop a hint for those trying to play The Longest Journey with this package that the engine currently doesn't build.

Feel free to let me know if anyone else have this problem too or is it just me and what the workaround is in the meantime :).

EDIT: Just checked today; the old commit of residual I build before didn't build either, but when I downgraded FreeType2 to older version (2.9-2) from pacman cache it worked. I'll let know the package maintainers about the issue, as I think it might affect ScummVM as well (configure files are similar there, I would have to check that).

EDIT2: Reported at FS#58491 : [freetype2] With 2.9.1-1, residualvm and scummvm can't find dependency

EDIT3: As per the reply in bug linked, it might seem that patching is required in residual's (and scummvm's, which they take patches from) side, see the bug report for more info.

You should add the info: "Conflicts: residualvm".

I am a robot. It is recommended to keep files in $pkgname/, instead of deep nesting. You have accidentally tarred up some dotfiles. Examples:
Suggestion: use "makepkg --source". This robot will not bother you again.
