Bug#731015: Header files in new location break third-party projects

Package: libfreetype6-dev
Version: 2.5.1-1
Severity: important

Hi Steve,

with the upload of freetype 2.5.1-1 the installation location of the header files has changed:

 Old: /usr/include/freetype2/freetype/*.h (2.4.9 and before)
 New: /usr/include/freetype2/*.h

Please work around this by placing im freetype symlink into /usr/include/freetype2 pointing to ../ (or
restore the former installation path for 2.5.x-y).

The incident popped up when trying to build nx-X11 against Debian sid.
