Make sure that this problem is not due to a non-libtool issue.  I
believe that any 'pkg-config' support for FreeType is a relatively
recent event.  The traditional approach is obtain configuration
parameters from a 'freetype-config' script.  The 'freetype-config'
script used will depend on the ordering of your PATH.

Also, LD_LIBRARY_PATH is not a configure option.  You should be using
LDFLAGS to tell configure where to search for libraries.
LD_LIBRARY_PATH has to do with locating libraries at run-time rather
than at link-time.
