Firstly sorry about the delay in replying to these problems; I've had
problems with my subscription to wine-devel, things seem to be back to
normal now though (thanks Andi!).
I'll add a configure test for the trig functions and disable FreeType
support if they're not present - there are other issues with 2.0.1
that make it unusable anyway.
If you're upgrading then go straight to 2.0.6 - there's a bug in
earlier versions that messes up inter-character spacing.
