I see one issue with this approach: it's testing the Freetype version  
at build time, but that doesn't ensure the behavior will be correct  
at run time. If xdvipdfmx is dynamically linked (as happens in many  
distros), the end user might still have Freetype 2.1.9 on their  
system, even though the build machine had 2.2.x.

So I've modified this to use the result of FT_Library_Version()  
(cached when fontmap.c initializes the library) rather than the  
preprocessor macros.
