Just downloaded and tried to build under cygwin, get the following error:

gcc: /usr/X11R6/lib/.libs/libfreetype.a: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [kernel/openbox.exe] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/openbox-3.0-alpha5'
make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

libfreetype.a exists in /usr/X11R6/lib, but there is no .libs directory

> Greetings all,
> I've just made an Alpha5 release of Openbox 3.0. Here's the 
> release notes
> from the website:
> To celebrate my 22nd birthday, I am releasing Alpha5!
> Alpha5 has some bugfixes, as well as some new stuff. Notable 
> changes since
> Alpha4 are as follows:
>   * Split the menu into its own file. See the 
> default/installed rc3 and menu
>     for examples. The menu is searched for as $HOME/.openbox/menu and
>     $PREFIX/openbox/menu if you do not specify a location in 
> the rc3 (or it
>     can't be loaded).
>   * Titles are no longer shown on submenus.
>   * Added the client_list_menu plugin (Default binding is 
> Middle button on
>     the root window).
>   * Added a new "activate" action which brings a window right to the
>     forefront (raises, focuses, unshades, uniconifies).
>   * Keyboard/Mouse input and Resistance are no longer done 
> through plugins.
>     If you have these in a pluginrc, you should remove them!
>   * New dialog shown while cycling/switching desktops. Added 
> a cyclingDialog
>     option in the desktops section of the rc3. If using the 
> dialog, and
>     using the mouse wheel to change desktops, it is 
> recommended that you use
>     the Alt+Wheel bindings (by default these are bound to 
> work anywhere on
>     the screen). If you use the simple "Wheel on root" 
> bindings, you'll end
>     up having to hit enter to pick the desktop.
>   * Fixes for directional focus actions, new GrowToEdge actions.
>   * Added the chainQuitKey option in the keybaord section of the rc3.
>   * Bullets for submenus. (A nicer default bullet will be 
> forthcoming.)
>   * New and improved window maximizing! The decorations 
> adjust themselves
>     intelligently around the window based on how it is 
> maximized, and the
>     handle at the bottom is removed when the window is maximized fully
>     (horizontally and vertically).
>   * Show a position based on the struts in the coords popup 
> when moving a
>     window.
>   * Getting rid of non-opaque window move/resize. Instead, 
> add an option -
>     drawContents - for if the window's contents are to be 
> updated during a
>     resize.
> The tarball awaits you here:
