There is a reason you may want to roll your own freetype. I don't
believe the freetype that ships with even the latest Xorg dpkg
contains support for the patented bytecode stuff or subpixel rendering
enabled. I could be wrong about needing to do it (perhaps I have an
old version floating around), but I rolled my own freetype with it
enabled and enabled the proper keys in Wine and can hardly see a
difference in Safari or Wine iexplore rendering

You should be legally covered on by virtue of being a Mac user as
Apple owns a nice patent chest and also owns one part of the patent
