The 2010 release of FreeSerif does not contain tables or glyphs for small caps.
However, these were added the day after the 2010 release, and will be
present in the next release of
GNU FreeFont.

However, so far I'm the only one to have tested these features, and
I'm not sure how you mean to use them.
If you're interested, I can get you a snapshot, and you can debug it.
That would be very helpful!
