OK, after applying the fix... it compiles! Huzzah! Hope whatever you  
changed makes it in to the main branch soon, in one form or another.  
Thank you!

I wonder if the problems I'm having with FreeType enabled, is that I'm  
building a universal binary. Whatever ft libs it's finding (stock or  
macports, dunno), may not be in universal format, and that may be  
causing problems.

Off to check on those interesting visual artifacts I was pasting the  
other day.
