In order to enable hinting in Freetype it's necessary to recompile it.
Freetype doesn't have a run-time option to turn on/off hinting. And no,
bytecode interpreter and autohinter are different things in Freetype with
very different results.

It's apps who tell what font attributes they would like to have.

So it's OK to query the global antialiasing setting (on or off).
