Please file a bug against freetype asking for them to do either of these:

Ship the needed header/etc files somewhere.

Ship a freetype-source package containing the full source for freetype.

It sounds like fontforge embeds part of freetype if you do that, so
when this is done, you will need to add this to debian/control and
something in debian/rules to set the freetype:Version substvar.

Built-Using: freetype (= ${freetype:Version})

No, definitely not. Please fix ttf-kochi too, it shouldn't copy
freetype around either.
