    The problem isn't that you're missing fonts, but that you're missing
    the libraries Imager needs to work with them.

    You need to install Freetype 2 (packaged on Debian as libfreetype6)
    and the Freetype 2 development includes and libraries (packaged on
    Debian as libfreetype6-devel). Or you install it from source.
