just found out that DESTDIR does not work:

   make DESTDIR=/var/tmp/texlive-root install

tries to install within the / hierarchy which is a bug.
Beside this I'd like to see the following change in

--- libs/freetype2/configure

 # eof

to be able to handle configure options with string including spaces.
