Indeed, that is the problem.

The harfbuzz build system is not safe for pkg_rolling-replace (at least
not without a chroot sandbox).

It finds the installed libraries from the still installed previous
version and tries to link with them, and especially since it doesn't use
anything sensible for library version numbers, it runs into backwards
compatability problems with itself.

Renaming the installed libraries so they couldn't be found and
rebuilding the package solved the problem.
