It works for building freetype-py packages on a Windows CI, so I'd say yes.

Did it work?

Don't worry, it's not your fault. I broke it myself and found out after the release, but didn't bug Werner to release a 

Thanks, I've not checked Git I should have done this first. Sorry for the noise.

I think I fixed this... maybe. Can you try git master?

I'm trying to build freetype 2.9.1 on Windows using CMake and Visual Studio 2017. It fails when trying to install ftconfig.h

-- Installing: C:/pkg/vs/amd64d/include/freetype2/freetype/tttags.h
-- Installing: C:/pkg/vs/amd64d/include/freetype2/ft2build.h
CMake Error at cmake_install.cmake:40 (file):
  file INSTALL cannot find

I've ran CMake with the following arguments:

    cmake . -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=C:/pkg/vs/amd64d -DBUILD_SHARED_LIBS=True -G"NMake Makefiles"

There is no ftconfig.h in build/include/freetype.
