It's optional and disabled by default. But I see that you added a
patch to enable it. That's good :-)

In fact, I wanted to make this update myself but found that
binary compatibility of this version with older releases is not
100% (98.9%, see http://upstream-tracker.org/versions/freetype2.html ).
So I decided not to hurry.

Please make sure this update is properly tested by QA to avoid broken
programs (failing with "Symbol not found: ..."). Or perhaps we should
carefully check what was removed and add it back if possible.
