"Building your own FreeType library is can be harmful"

I'm building the latest xorg from CVS with:
#define HasFreetype2 NO
When compiling, I get lot's of:
#warning Building your own FreeType library is deprecated and can be harmful.
#warning If your distribution supplies a FreeType library, you are urged to
#warning consider using it instead.
Can anyone explain to me why this is bad and "harmful"? I'm building a
Xserver (Xvnc) binary that should work on multiple distributions, so I
cannot rely on the distribution providing a certain Freetype version.
