That is certainly one possibility, but we need to decide what minimum 
version of each library we require. The lower we can go the better. I 
think the patch I just sent a moment ago should remove the dependency 
on the very latest FreeType version. We can expect more users with 
outdated libraries in the future, so it is not too bad to have a 
tester with a not-leading-edge FreeType version.
