Comment 10 for bug 1707691

@John Arnold
There is a really simple workaround till this is fixed.

This worked for me and let me compile xorgxrdp. Not sure what your use case is but...

step 1

$ sudo touch /usr/include/X11/fonts/fontutil.h

This file is owned by root:root, with mode 0o644.

Then edit that file and put the following contents into it:

#ifndef _FONTUTIL_H_
#define _FONTUTIL_H_

#include <X11/fonts/FSproto.h>

extern int FontCouldBeTerminal(FontInfoPtr);
extern int CheckFSFormat(fsBitmapFormat, fsBitmapFormatMask, int *, int *,
    int *, int *, int *);
extern void FontComputeInfoAccelerators(FontInfoPtr);

extern void GetGlyphs ( FontPtr font, unsigned long count,
   unsigned char *chars, FontEncoding fontEncoding,
   unsigned long *glyphcount, CharInfoPtr *glyphs );
extern void QueryGlyphExtents ( FontPtr pFont, CharInfoPtr *charinfo,
    unsigned long count, ExtentInfoRec *info );
extern Bool QueryTextExtents ( FontPtr pFont, unsigned long count,
          unsigned char *chars, ExtentInfoRec *info );
extern Bool ParseGlyphCachingMode ( char *str );
extern void InitGlyphCaching ( void );
extern void SetGlyphCachingMode ( int newmode );
extern int add_range ( fsRange *newrange, int *nranges, fsRange **range,
         Bool charset_subset );

#endif /* _FONTUTIL_H_ */

                          = = = = = = = = = = =

Save the file and then do your compile/make etc and it should succeed.

Again, this is just a workaround till the bug gets fixed but it works for me.
