[Bf-committers] Freetype issues

I've recently enabled INTERNATIONAL in instinctive-blender just for the
fun of it, and noticed some potentially serious issue:
When loading .blends, especially ones dealing with lots of tightly aligned
text, I noticed that Freetype renders Postscript Type1 fonts (which I
use exclusively) very differently from Blender's internal postscript
Even worse, some of the files randomly crashes in FT_* stuff or
characters were simply missing or corrupted (while they rendered fine
all the years with the internal interpreter).
I also assume that between Freetype versions, rendering of characters
to curves will differ, too.
This is potentially bad, as the same .blend file can look different on
This - in my opinion - calls for including the relevant parts of
Freetype in the blender source tree and linking statically to them.
