Replying to neteler:

In Scietific Linux, I have additional TTF fonts in /usr/share/fonts/bitstream-vera/ but they aren't picked up:

g.mkfontcap -o -s extra=/usr/share/fonts/bitstream-vera

[snip]

Is that the entire output from g.mkfontcap? Because I only see stroke fonts there, which leads me to wonder whether g.mkfontcap (or GRASS generally) was built without FreeType? support.

Try ldd `which g.mkfontcap` . Does it have a dependency upon libfreetype?

Aarg, GRASS was built on that machine with --with-freetype=no , so no surprise any more.

What about encapsulating the extradirs parameter with

#ifdef HAVE_FT2BUILD_H

or to print a related warning that no FreeType support was compiled in?

One problem with conditional options is that the online manual should ideally document all options, not just those which work in the specific build of GRASS used to generate the documentation.

or to print a related warning that no FreeType support was compiled in?

A warning would probably be appropriate here.

Resolution: fixed

I have added the warning in r34387 and r34388.
