I had already done that:
$ objdump -p /usr/pkg/bin/gnumeric | grep libfree
$ ldd /usr/pkg/bin/gnumeric | grep libfree
-lfreetype.9 => /usr/pkg/lib/libfreetype.so.9
I might suspect that some dependency is requesting libfreetype.so.8
somehow but the pkg system was built entirely in this same environment.
I tried rebuilding my pkg environment again, but pkgsrc appears
fairly hosed right now, at least for a newly-installed -current,
so not much chance of that.
