It turns out the freetype library I compiled myself, didn't include 
everything I needed in it.
I downloaded the prebuilt libraries from: 

And it worked.
So now I've managed to compile skins2.

However in my compiled version of vlc there's no
Settings->Switch Interface menu...

So I can't change to skins2...
Is there a way to specify skins2 on the command line?
Like maybe: vlc --intf "skins2" ?
