You can just clone the official source from
http://git.savannah.gnu.org/r/emacs.git

Getting freetype + harfbuff is messy. Here is what I have from my notes.. I
need to install all libs in my $HOME as a non-root user on my machine..

1 freetype + harfbuzz                                :pango:ghostscript:
=====================

  The RHEL6 default freetype version was older than 2.4.2 (the min
  required version of freetype to install ghostscript).  It was
  preinstalled on the system.

  /freetype - last downloaded version -- 2.6/ /harfbuzz - last
  downloaded version -- 1.0.3/

  [https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=75652]

  freetype depends on harfbuzz and vice versa. To solve this chicken and
  egg problem, do this.

  1. First install freetype *without harfbuzz*
     ,----
     | make distclean
     | ./configure --prefix=$HOME/local --without-harfbuzz
     | make
     | make install
     `----
  2. Then install harfbuzz
     ,----
     | make distclean
     | ./configure --prefix=$HOME/local
     | make
     | make install
     `----
  3. Reinstall freetype *with harfbuzz*
     ,----
     | make distclean
     | ./configure --prefix=$HOME/local
     | make
     | make install
     `----
