problem with libfontmanager in jdk 1.7.0u

This issue arose last week on the list (thread subject "Problems running 
Swing app with latest build").

Looking at it again, I notice that 10.7.3 delivers compatibility version 
14.0.0 of libfreetype
whereas 10.7.2 has version 13.0.0. So, in this respect it looks like 
10.7.3 is not downwards
compatible with previous versions of 10.7.

I guess that means we should be building on 10.7.2 or earlier (if we 
want full support
of 10.7.*)
