For more info on pkgconf, see <https://github.com/pkgconf/pkgconf>.

I seem to have both pkgconf and pkg-config, and on Archlinux both
are even provided by the same package.

I used pkgconf as suggested by an Archlinux packager. Don't know 
if this is the best choice to support other distros.

Anyway, all that is required is -I/usr/include/freetype2 and maybe
that is what I should use. Comments invited.

The whole issue in the case of freetype is rather strange anyway.
None of my application explicitly link with the freetype library.
The -I is necessary only to satisify a nested #include in
/usr/include/X11/Xft/Xft.h required by clxlient.h.
