1. Ok, reformat done.

2. Ok, long lines fixed.

3. I can not apply changes, I do not keep tons of unworked versios and do not use any cvs in process.

4. I will need help with documetation.

5. New files added because cmake have configure_file() function, witch expect @VAR_NAME@ to replace, istead %VAR_NAME% in current files. This saves ton of cmake code and make easy to read and understand CMakeFile.txt.
Also I made some small changes to these files.

6. Ok, I try :)

I take CMakeList.txt frome one mine projects and use it as template.
Next I add all staff from original CMakeList.txt.
Then I spent many time trying to fix pc file generetion, build static and shared lib same time, replacing vars in ftconfig.h and ftoption.h.

What new/differ:
1. freetype.pc file generated and installed

2. All staff that install autotool - now installed by cmake.

3. options:
FT_WITH_ZLIB - "Use system zlib instead of internal library."
FT_WITH_BZIP2 - "Support bzip2 compressed fonts."
FT_WITH_PNG - "Support PNG compressed OpenType embedded bitmaps."
FT_WITH_HARFBUZZ - "Improve auto-hinting of OpenType fonts."
FT_WITH_CONFIG - "Install freetype-config."
FT_DISABLE_MMAP - "do not check mmap() and do not use."
ENABLE_FULL_DEBUG - "Build with all possible debug."

4. All options OFF by default, no autodetect.

5. Use hardening things, if compiller/linker support:

Thanks for your contribution. However, there are very serious problems with your patch.

  • I very much dislike indentation by tabs. AFAIK, this is not necessary for cmake, so please stay with two spaces per indentation level.
  • Similarly, you are introducing overlong lines, which I very much dislike, too. If possible, please stay within a line length of 80 characters – yes, I'm old-fashioned and conservative :-)
  • To make a comparison with your version and the current state possible, please apply your changes incrementally. I want to have a series of patches that introduce your added functionality in steps as small as possible – and formatting should be the last, optional patch in this series.
  • Documentation is completely lacking in case you are adding new features. You must fix this.
  • I dislike that you add new files `freetype-config.cmake' and `freetype2.cmake'. Why? We already have similar files, and maintaining two such files is error-prone. This alone is actually a reason to reject your patch...
  • I need ChangeLog entries for each step (these entries should not be part of the patch files but rather added separately in the preambles of those files).

Please retry.

I have done update CMake files, now they can be used as main build system, at least for FreeBSD.

I try to keep all functionality from autotools and add some hardening and debug features.
