Actually, the current XeTeX source is set up to static-link with its  
own included Freetype 2.2.1 sources, if you use the provided script  
to run the configure and make process. So it should be independent of  
the installed version. This was a fairly recent change (July 14th,  
according to the svn log), so if you haven't updated since then, it  
may not be true for your copy.

(It may indirectly use the installed version *as well*, because it  
links dynamically with the installed Fontconfig, and that in turn  
probably links with Freetype. But this should not affect xetex's
