Do they also have more recent versions of freetype and fontconfig (I'm  
a little bit short on time ATM, so I haven't looked myself, sorry)?

I don't think this will work well, please use the complete path like  
with the other parts of RUN_DEPENDS.


Please use the same style in RUN_DEPENDS here too. They reside in  
LINUXBASE, and nearly nothing of our ports infrastrucuture looks into  

Apart from that I can not see any obvious problem.
