Comment 11 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.
