Do you want to use FreeType2 on the system whose memory is 64kB?
Or, 64kB is just only on-chip & additional memory is available?
I remember there had ever been several posts asking for the
applicability of FreeType2 on extremely small systems (in comparison
with Unix-like systems assuming MMU), but usually the engineers
asking the question tell that the interpreter of TrueType is not
essential for their purpose and what they wanted are bitmap loader,
then, "FreeType2 is not the best solution for the people looking
for bitmap loader" was the answer in most cases.

Hmm, so you want to establish SVG rasterizer on your system?
