 Thanks for the details.  I can't reproduce the failure to build
bdftopcf with what I think is a now slightly old 6.3 system
(libXfont-1.2.8, bdftopcf-1.0.1) with the upgraded freetype.

 I'm unsure where to go from here, it looks as if I might have broken
trunk as well as 6.3, for some combination of packages ?
