[PyQt] Running PyQt-x11-gpl-3.17.4: undefined symbol FT_Load_Sfnt_Table

  I've just built sip-4.7.3 and PyQt 3.17.4.

  I'm getting the following error while trying to run the examples:

misha at poseidon:~/src/PyQt-x11-gpl-3.17.4$ python examples2/aclock.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "examples2/aclock.py", line 4, in ?
    from qt import *
ImportError: /usr/lib/libfontconfig.so.1: undefined symbol: FT_Load_Sfnt_Table

  I had problems building PyQt originally, it wasn't able to link with
libfreetype.so correctly.  I got around this by passing
LIBS_X11+=-lfreetype to the configure script.  The build ran fine.

  It seems that I have missed something.  FT_Load_Sfnt_Table -- this
function is from libfreetype.so.  Can anybody hint what it is?

  Many thanks in advance.

Cheers and regards,
