Drayer's build dumps a lot of FreeType crap into the hidden /usr/local folder. Nuking everything in there (the only other thing I had was MacFUSE, easily replaceable) did the trick, and Mike's build works once again.

You should not have to remove anything except entries related to the Zach's code in /usr/local/lib. Look for files that begin with libfontforge, libfreetype, libdraw, libgioftp, libgunicode, and lastly libgutils. The way that MacOSX first looks for files is to look in /usr/lib and then /usr/local/lib.

There is. Google for programs that support this. HOWEVER, these files are deliberately hidden because if you delete them, you are in for a system rebuild. I've seen folks that have deleted files that were needed and did not have a backup of them (Time Machine will NOT do this for you.) My suggestion is if you don't know what the file does, do not delete it. Ask first in a Mac support forum.
