Yes - I searched around and found a hint in the Gnome.org archives.
Basically you need to replace the freetype-2.1.3 module with the
Grab freetype-2.1.4rc1.tar.bz2 and put it in misc/freetype/downloads
Next calculate the md5 checksum of the downloaded file, i.e.:
# cd misc/freetype
# md5sum download/freetype-2.1.4rc1.tar.bz2 >> checksums
so that your misc/freetype/checksums file looks like this (maybe)
Then edit misc/freetype/Makefile and change the GARVERSION from 2.1.3
For good measure get rid of the old fc-list binary.
Rebuild and have fun with garnome!
Thanks to Andrew Gaffney for posting this fix on 10-Feb to the
