Hi All,
        When using "xelatex" on NetBSD amd64, the shared object
"libfreetype.so.18" is not found and the executable is not run.

I use the standard current installation.

I think it would be wiser to include this library statically
in the executable since it is not very common.

Is it possible to recompile the executable to solve this problem?

Fortunately, "lualatex" works flawlessly but I generally prefer

Thanks for help.
