Hi David, thanks for the suggestion - I hadn't realised there was a
later version of ftjam. Based on Brian's tip, I added "#define
FT2_BUILD_LIBRARY" to ft2build.h and ftjam then built ok. Why it
wasn't picking up the DEFINES statement in the Jamfile I'm not quite
sure. I'll try FTJam 2.5.1 and see what happens.

Thanks again.
