A bit of a Google around notes this bug report in Debian:
which basically says that this is probably caused by libfreetype issues.

The libfreetype.so.6 is contained in both the aaa_elflibs and libfreetype
$ grep libfreetype.so.6 /var/log/packages/*

So, your restoring a libfreetype from your backups, or maybe you've got an old
version of one of those packages still lying around. I'd try doing a "$ locate
libfreetype" and see what you get.
