I have tried using setup.cfg to point it to the location of libfreetype.a

bash-3.00$ ls -l *free*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root system 1692230 Apr 8 05:13 libfreetype.a
bash-3.00$ pwd

Here is my setup.cfg

#This is normally only used for win32
#lib=path to your freetype2 .lib file eg
#libdir=path the the containing folder; leave empty uses dirname(of the lib)
#incdir=path to the include files for your setup or it uses ../include
from the libdir
