OK, thanks.

You mean on the MXE side?  No idea.  FreeType auto-detects harfbuzz,
so just calling `configure; make; make install' after harfbuzz has
been built is fully sufficient.

No.  The API doesn't change; it's just that the auto-hinter is smarter
if harfbuzz gets compiled in.

What about making MXE's `harfbuzz.mk' simply touch `freetype.mk', then
directly calling `make freetype'?
