Bug description:  "libgd was not built with TrueType font support" problem

<? imagettfbbox(5, 0, "x.ttf", "the text"); ?>
shows : Warning: libgd was not built with TrueType font support in
/www/test2.php on line 1

shows :
GD Support enabled 
GD Version 1.6.2 or higher 
FreeType Support enabled 
FreeType Linkage with freetype 
JPG Support enabled 
PNG Support enabled 
WBMP Support enabled 

So basically I'd say something is not working correctly.
I have tried with PHP 4.0.6 on 2 FreeBSD servers I have.

Here's my configure line :
./configure --enable-inline-optimization --with-apxs --enable-calendar
--enable-ftp --enable-track-vars --with-gd=/usr/local
--with-freetype-dir=/usr/local --with-mysql

All looks ok during config & compilation of PHP.
Here's what shows:
checking whether to include GD support... yes
checking whether to enable truetype string function in gd... no
checking for freetype(2)... yes
checking whether to include include FreeType 1.x support... no
checking whether to include T1lib support... no
checking for gdImageString16 in -lgd... (cached) yes
checking for gdImagePaletteCopy in -lgd... (cached) yes
checking for gdImageCreateFromPng in -lgd... (cached) yes
checking for gdImageCreateFromGif in -lgd... (cached) no

I tried with --enable-gd-native-ttf and --enable-gd-imgstrttf, it's not

Also note that there is an error in the configure script :
> cat configure | grep -i native-tt
  --enable-gd-native-ttf    GD: Enable TrueType string function in gd"
# Check whether --enable-gd-native-tt or --disable-gd-native-tt was

It's confusing... --enable-gd-native-tt or --enable-gd-native-ttf ?
