FreeType 2.1.5 causes fc-cache to segfault when caching ghostscript fonts.
 I hit this problem a while ago and finally found the fix in Debian's

The fix is present in 2.1.7, but for API compatibility reasons, we don't
want 2.1.7 in BLFS.

Patch against 2.1.5 attached...

"If a server crashes in a server farm and no one pings it, does it still
cost four figures to fix?"
