Reason why freetype2 hasnt been updated in a while is that I found that
some modules didnt compile with it.  of course thats when it 1st came
out so things might be fixed now.  Also the fonts used with 2.1.8 didnt
seem so nice and once I downgraded back to 2.1.5 thinsg were better.  I
think though that some modules need to be tested to make sure that
things are kosher.  Mozilla (firefox and tbird), pango, xfree86, xorg,
vte, basically any module that might use freetype to help display fonts.
