           Summary: typo in check for version of freetype in configure
           Product: cairo
           Version: 1.8.5
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: cworth at cworth.org
        ReportedBy: ppetrovic at acm.org

On line 29483 of configure script in cairo 1.8.6, the script is checking
for version of freetype, however, awk results with syntax error, thus
making the configure fail completely and refuse produce makefile.

It seems that the script is only missing \$X references in printf() call.

Current version:

{printf("%d\n", 10000* + 100* + )};

The following fix produced correct behavior:

{printf("%d\n", 10000*\$0 + 100*\$1 + \$2)};

Here is the output of configure with the current version:

checking for freetype-config... /usr/local/bin/freetype-config
checking freetype2 libtool version... awk: {printf("%d\n", 10000* + 100* + );}
awk:                                 ^ syntax error
awk: {printf("%d\n", 10000* + 100* + );}
awk:                                 ^ syntax error
9.7.3 - Too old
checking whether cairo's FreeType font backend feature could be enabled... no
(9.7.3 found; version 9.7.3 from release 2.1.9 required)

configure: error: Cairo requires at least one native font backend.  Please
install FreeType and fontconfig and try again.

I used the official cairo 1.8.6 tar.gz distribution.
Have a nice day.
