Keep in mind that mlterm is an international terminal and as such
there are a number of languages out there that do NOT need or require
Bidi (bidirectionality) abilities. So its rather reasonable for the
authors of mlterm not to require fribidi to compile and install their
application (ie. it's pretty reasonable for fribidi to be optional).
As for why mandrake is missing RPMs with fribidi pre-compiled, that is
an issue worth raising with those that create RPMs and those that
include them in rpmfind.net, etc.
Hope that helps & Salam.
