You deleted the working version and left the broken one.  XFree86 4.3 
includes ancient FreeType bits which should never be installed.

Make sure you include:

	#define HasFontconfig           YES
	#define HasExpat                YES
	#define HasFreetype2            YES

in your config/cf/host.def file before building X or you'll end up with 
whatever broken versions are left around in XFree86 CVS.
