The goal of this archive is to provide libSDL_ttf as a shared object because it
was not available at that time and both SDL and freetype shared object exist.
More, I was confused with static libraries libfreetype and libft2.

Warning ! The previous release was broken ! As programming with shared objects
is quite new for me, I made a mistake. The error is fixed now.


Copy "libSDL_ttf.so" to SOBJS:
Make eventually a link on it from "SDK:Local/newlib/lib/", it will make the
finding the shared object before an existing static library "libSDL_ttf.a"
Copy "SDL_ttf.h" to "SDK:Local/common/include/SDL/"

How to use it

I added an example named ... "example.c" that can be compiled with the line :

gcc -Wall -L/SOBJS -ISDK:local/newlib/include/SDL -ISDK:local/common/include/SDL
-Wl,--verbose -use-dynld -o example example.c -lSDL-1.2 -lSDL_ttf -lfreetype -lz

Each shared object must have its dependent libraries as shared object too.

When you compile and executable and you want to check which shared objects
are dependent, run : readelf -d example

Compilation to build the shared object

It is very easy to create a shared object, here is how I compiled it :
SDL_ttf-2.0.9> gcc -O2 -I/SDK/Local/newlib/include/SDL -fPIC -c SDL_ttf.c 
SDL_ttf-2.0.9> gcc -L/SOBJS/ -use-dynld -shared -o libSDL_ttf.so SDL_ttf.o

I added the tag to get the version with the command of the same name.
