Maybe the files in

can help you.  We would be glad to add more info if necessary.

Can you directly use the C files (compiled as a Java library), or do
you plan to rewrite everying in Java?  The latter is probably quite
time consuming, given that FreeType 2 sometimes changes radically...

Nevertheless, it should be possible to add a new Freetype-Java module
and give you write access to that.  Alternatively, some Java support
files could be directly added to the FreeType2 repository.  David?
