Unlike many high-profile packages, Freetype is also used on (mostly
embedded) platforms where shared libraries just do not exist.

Also if some vendor has a design which, perhaps for historic reasons, do
not include shared libraries, to make a single exception for Freetype
will not ease substantially her updating pain.
And forcing a design change to use shared libraries all over the place
is often an order of magnitude more complex (and more expensive.)
