Hi Ag,

 I doubt this is my problem, I'm still on freetype-2.1.10, but might
as well give it a try.  I downloaded your patch from the archive,
but got rejections in SplashFTFont.cc (looks as if there might be an
extra space at the start of the lines) - applied by hand, but I get

SplashFTFont.cc: In member function ‘virtual SplashPath*
SplashFTFont.cc:221: error: invalid conversion from ‘int (*)(const
FT_Vector*, void*)’ to ‘int (*)(FT_Vector*, void*)’

 (the message about line 221 repeats 4 times).

 I've added epdfview to my list of things to investigate.  I suppose
I could look at the newer freetype in the future as well, but I'm
trying not to use newer versions at the moment (I've got other
architectures to update, too much variation confuses me ;)

 Thanks anyway.
