For good reason.  This *was* definitely an issue.  I think that libXfont 
was updated to 1.3 already, I can't remember and I'm not in a position 
to check ATM.  Anyway, here is a quote from Dan (ticket #2518) that 
describes the Freetype-2.3.5+ issue in detail (and a working fix, well 
actually this is the patch that broke things but reversing it should 
handle the issue fine for 2.3.7 and BLFS-6.3...I think):

 Now I found the problem. It's in freetype-2.3.5 where they stopped
 defining the ft_* macros:
