Configure fail with --with-freetype-dir.

$ cd php-5.5.10
$ ./configure --with-libxml-dir=/usr/local/lib/libxml2 --with-zlib-dir=/usr/local/lib/zlib \
--with-gd --with-png-dir=/usr/local/lib/libpng \
--with-jpeg-dir=/usr/local/lib/libjpeg --with-freetype-dir=/usr/local/lib/freetype
configure: error: GD build test failed. Please check the config.log for details.

When configure PHP 5.5.6 it works fine.
