That may cause odd issues with make’s dependency logic as it will then consider 
harfbuzz outdated since freetype changed - it’s probably better to keep 
explicit deps. Also, it would mean that packages like qt5 and sdl_ttf won’t get 
the improved version with harfbuzz support.

There’s also another set of dependencies with 
freetype->fontconfig->cario->harfbuzz->freetype. We may need to bootstrap 
fontconfig and cairo also, I’ll have a think about it.
