Hmm, are you sure that you upgraded FreeType on the 7.2 machine?
This is exactly the difference I'd expect between a machine
with FT_Get_Next_Char() (added in 2.0.9) and one without
FT_Get_Next_Char(.) The one without FT_Get_Next_Char() would
take a really long time to compute the cached coverage information.


Here's what rpm has to say:

[emader doramichan emader]$ rpm -q freetype
[emader doramichan emader]$ rpm -q --filesbypkg freetype
freetype                  /usr/lib/
freetype                  /usr/lib/
freetype                  /usr/lib/
freetype                  /usr/lib/
    [the rest of the stuff is in /usr/share/doc and /usr/share/locale]
[emader doramichan emader]$

Finally, here's what's in config.log:

[emader doramichan pango]$ grep FT_Get_First_Char config.log
configure:8351: checking for FT_Get_First_Char
[emader doramichan pango]$
