The build is not set up to cover every possible scenario, and requires 
freetype because it will build parts of the JDK that depend on it. Build 
requirements are covered in README-builds.html at the top of the repo.

Build specific queries should go to build-dev at openjdk.java.net - though 
this query comes up a bit so you should be able to find a link via google.
