The new version that depends on freetype-2.

It is a combination of 4 patches by redhat, unfortunately they don't 
have much information on what the patches do. But here is what I got 
from the ChangeLog in the spec file:

    * conflicting isatty() prototype w/ glibc 2.2.
    * gcc-3 related fixes.
    * ISO C++ 98 compliance.
    * YY_NO_INPUT patch.
