    Some tests were removed from t38ft2font.t just before 0.42 were released,
    and unfortunately the skip count wasn't updated. I've updated it and
    committed it to CVS.

    You can safely ignore this test failure.

    You need to install the runtime and development libraries for each
    image/font format you want to support.

      apt-get install libjpeg62-dev libjpeg62

      apt-get install libtiff3g-dev libtiff3g

      apt-get install libpng-dev libpng3

      apt-get install libungif4-dev libungif4g

    Freetype 2:
      apt-get install libfreetype6-dev libfreetype6

    Freetype 1:
      apt-get install libttf-dev libttf2

      apt-get install t1lib-dev t1lib1

    Once you've installed the libraries for the formats you want, run perl
    Makefile.PL again and then make.
