Yes, I am aware :( Long term I hope windows 32bit gets the same occasional
love as zero does. I can produce occasional patches if time allows.

But in this case the error was in front of the computer, as Magnus pointed,
I may just have a broken build env.

Thanks for your fix, btw! removing the freetypelib building hassle is a
huge step toward an easier windows build setup.
