The openDarwin project seem to have already found this one:

Looks like an external freetype2 library is used, which doesn't work together 
with the fontconfig version in X.Org. Which version of freetype2 are you using 
in your system? You might try to specify 
  #define BuildFreetype2Library YES 
in xc/config/host.def to use the freetype2 version which ships with X.Org.

Ouch. Somer more important information about this on xorg@freedesktop.org:

Right. You need at least freetype 2.1.7 to build the tree succeessfully. 
If you don't have that you will have to enable building of the included 
freetype module. This will unfortunately render the freetype module 
of the Xserver that gets build unsuable - partly because of bugs in 
freetype 2.1.7. I have caught this error yesterday and the workaround is 
rather simple. Unfortunately this wasn't detected prior to the 6.7 release 
I will upgrade freetype in the tree to the new 2.1.8 which has these 
bugs removed and has a new API that will allow Chisato to accelerate 
rendering of East Asian fonts without having to rely on an internal 
freetype function. 
This will unfortunately have to wait until I return from Boston. 
Comment 3 Egbert Eich 2004-05-06 01:56:22 UTC
Chisato's changes to the freetype font module have moved the requirement to
freetype2 2.1.8 even. If this is not supplied please use
#define HasFreetype2 NO 
in host.def to build the freetype code supplied with the tree.
I guess there is no other way to fix this bug so I mark it 'wontfix'.
