Gentoo: freetype, harfbuzz and circular dependencies

Somtimes, building the freetype library failes due to circular dependencies between the harfbuzz and the freetype libraries depending on the set USE flags. This can be solved by the following order of installation:

USE="-harfbuzz" emerge -1 media-libs/freetype
emerge -1 media-libs/harfbuzz
emerge -1 media-libs/freetype

Future updates should work without any further issues though.
