Indeed; I see the same problems with 3.0.10 as with 3.0.9.

Uh, firefox links against both builtin (I'm using XFree86 built from
HEAD xsrc) and pkgsrc freetype2:

$ ldd /usr/pkg/lib/firefox3/firefox-bin | grep freetype
        -lfreetype.6 => /usr/pkg/lib/
        -lfreetype.9 => /usr/X11R6/lib/

While I don't know whether this is a problem or not, it probably does not
cause the rendering problem I'm seeing: Firefox 3.0.7 also linked against
both freetype2 libraries and rendered fine.

I built graphics/freetype2 with options `subpixel' and `truetype'; the
builtin freetype2 was built with MKTTINTERP=yes.

Comparing the +BUILD_INFO files from the 3.0.7 and 3.0.9 packages I see
that the order of freetype2 include and library paths as they are passed to
compiler and linker respectively are different.  Some (hand-edited) diff(1)

Could this be the source of this problem?
