--disable-builtin-freetype breaks compilation

I tried to build root 4.03/04 on Mac OS X 10.3.8 using the new configuration option to disable the builtin freetype, i.e.

configure macosx --disable-builtin-freetype

The subsequent make fails with:
make: *** No rule to make target `-lfreetype', needed by `graf/src/TLatex.o'. Stop.

It turns out that in case that disable-builtin-freetype is active, this code in freetype/Module.mk is executed:

FREETYPELIBF    := $(shell freetype-config --libs)
FREETYPEINC     := $(shell freetype-config --cflags)
FREETYPELIB     := $(filter -l%,$(FREETYPELIBF))

thus FREETYPELIB is set to '-lfreetype'. So far so good, but in the following Module.mk the variable FREETYPELIB is also used for the dependency tracking, i.e. there are lines like:


This triggers the error above. I just removed the dependency on
$(FREETYPELIB) from the three Module.mk files and the compile finished
