Do you know what is causing this error ?

I just read a couple of messages one of which was: 
If the problem is that I have an old version of freetype installed, 
could you display a list of dependencies on your web page and in the 
source distribution ? I'm going to install the current version of 
freetype so if this is the source of the problem, it will be solved.
