Well, i finally downloaded and recompiled Freetype (2.1.7, because 2.1.8
and 2.1.9 failed at the linking step) with the Bytecode interpreted enabled,
and certainly makes a difference ;). The auto hinter in the library is
visibly not as good as the bytecode interpreter.

Thanks to all that helped me with this problem and pointed me to the right
solution :). I had spent several days trying to fix this problem with no
results, and would have lost several more if it wasn't for your help ;)
