Subject: Custom path to freetype.h not found using X11=… argument
Specifying X11=… to Makefile.PL is not sufficient to find freetype.h in the specified X11 prefix, but specifying X11INC=…/include works. If I understand correctly, the expected behavior is that specifying X11=… should have the same effect as specifying X11INC=…/include and X11LIB=…/lib, allowing freetype.h to be found the same as how libX11.* and X11/Xlib.h can be found when using only the X11=… argument.

I believe line 442 of myConfig is relevant: it uses $X11INC, but at that line $X11INC will not be set when only X11=… is specified to Makefile.PL.
