Hi Nikola,

the strange thing here is the explicit dependency on libfreetype.so.9.
I think this is caused by using 'freetype-config --libs' and probably could
be avoided using 'freetype-config --libtool'.

For tcdialog, the only way I could imagine is that you arrange to link
against libncurses.a

Same for clisp and asy that are not part of the TL build system, whereas
xindy.run is just the clisp runtime (lisp.run) of your clisp.
