RenderPM is an optional dependency for RL, which itself requires
FreeType2 - during install the script should announce if it has been
found or not. You'll need to install FreeType2 (and the -devel) and
reinstall RL. Without more details on your environment I can't be more
specific, though if you're on a Mac, the posts of the last couple of
days should be very useful as it's been fully detailed.

As with all such things Google Is Your Friend [i.e.
"site:two.pairlist.net reportlab install"]. Someone, in the last couple
of months, posted a specialised search provider for mailing lists -
though without a searchable archive it'll be hard to find....
