5. Revert it to how it was prior to freetype-2.1.3 ie: don't even mention it
for now! People won't even realise that some static zlib code has been
compiled into their freetype (I didn't! :-) Once a new freetype version is
released that fixes the problem and is known not to cause side-effects then
re-enable the "freetype uses system zlib" bits and live happily ever after.

No, that is a similar but different problem relating to libpng. Not relevant
here I'm afraid.
