Yes, looks like that's the case. As soon as I deviate from 
"--disable-shared --enable-static" the make process fails because it reckons 
that I need a shared freetype library (dll), and I can't get freetype to 
build anything other than a static library. (I'll check for a more recent 
version of freetype source and see if that makes a difference, when I have 
the time .... but I'm not all that passionate about building dll's anyway.)
