   I found the problem and a solution to it. For some reason, the patched
freetype-2.5.5 fails, but the original freetype-2.5.0 works. Now, why that
should be the case here and not on Sebastian's virtual 14.1/x86_i586 I've no

   I downloaded the SlackBuilds source for freetype-4.6.3 from the 14.2
repoaistory at osuosl.org. I'll build that and see how scribus reacts.

Thanks again,
