Not remembering the source of my builds at the time of my bug. Again as I remember it, I downloaded and built a more current freetype and started using that from the X11 diredtory. No issues after that. Not a concern to me if it's not a high priority bug, or even left open if you say no end user of the released version will ever see it.
Not sure how Greg Brown ran into it again. But apparently if the libt2k version _somehow_ isn't present, you are at the mercy of the X11 version.
