I was desperate for an answer and asked the same question here and on StackOverflow and it's been put on-hold here as being off-topic.

However, given the nature of the question, I feel it's more relevant here. StackOverflow also says that it's too old to migrate. Will deleting it from there be sufficient to remove the on-hold status?

  • The SO version seems to have an accepted answer; is it not solved? May 4, 2016 at 17:30
  • I found the answer (missing freetype lib support) and for the sake of completeness, I'd like to post it here under "Your Answer" as suggested by @Anthon. However, I can't do that till it's removed from on-hold.

  • Question can be put on hold only for being asked by the same person on multiple Stack Exchange sites, but, for some reason, when that happens, it it just says that it was closed for being off-topic. May 5, 2016 at 20:43

Not sure what the right thing to do is since the SO version is too old to migrate and can't be deleted with an accepted answer. I just reopened our version so you can post the answer (and edit it out of the question), and I guess we'll have both around, which is unfortunate for the people who find the SO version

  • I could delete the SO answer but I don't want to do that since Thomas provided a detailed response that helps answer a lot of the question.
