Sorry, you were completely clear but I was hopelessly confused about 
version #s. I was getting freetype versions mixed up with libpng.

I built freetype 2.2.1 and yes it's broken. I'll stick to 2.1.x until a 
newer 2.2.x is released (since matplotlib seems perfectly happy with 
it). Charlie Moad built 2.1.10, which works as you said it would.

Thank you all for your help.
