I don't think the old libs should have any effect; this is a problem  
with the freetype library embedded in the new TW build. Inspecting it,  
I see that it is x86-only, it didn't get built as a "fat" library.

So there's no chance of PDF viewing working on a PPC with this build. : 
( I'll try to get this fixed soon.
