I will need to build shared libraries, but at this stage not sure. I'll 
try again with the  libfontconfig1 removed from the AB line

.. build does complete, thanks

shared libraries. ... I've missed this.. how do I globally turn on the 
build of shared libraries please?


p.s. I'm building quite a list of things where I have local patches to 
the autobuilder scripts. Should theyy all come through you, or might it 
be simpler if I put them in directly?  (I guess I'm also asking whether 
that could be arranged..)
