Please, please, please, I beg you, do *not* encourage people to install
a second libfreetype.so on their system.

It won't overwrite the distribution's version, no. It *will* cause the
person to submit a Pango bug report 6 months from now because configure
tests are running against one libfreetype and Pango is linking against
the other, or because Pango is linking against one libfreetype and
running against the other, or some other weirdness that the user has
no chance at all of being able to debug correctly.
