Debian package search reports an FTFont.h in libftgl-dev [1]
With this installed `./autogen.sh && ./configure` from [2] outputs:

  used optional libraries:

   font-rendering         : FTGL
      default font        :

Maybe the configure check is broken when FTGL is not installed?  Try 
installing libftgl-dev, and report back if this fixes it or otherwise.
