Really, really, really sorry.  This FreeImage is also cr#p. My apologizes. FreeImage 3.11.0 does not support the $(DESTDIR) variable which I was relying on when I built it. (Funny thing is version. 3.12.0 does, but is no good for fotoxx). 
Again, sorry. This will teach me to not to try and build something on my lunch hour.
A fix is in the works, but this time I will not upload without proper testing.
Did I mention I was sorry.
