HI Phil, 
looks good to me and  fixes the issue seen on Solaris 11 and Suse Linux 15  (I am not a Reviewer however).
In the file :


you might update the Copyright year info .

I noticed that the return code handling of a few other freetype functions is not checked as well  at all call sites
( e.g.   FT_Done_FreeType,  FT_Reference_Face ).
I am not sure how critical this is , might be handled  in another CR .

Best regards, Matthias
