Hm. Are you using the precompiled packages? If so, maybe the gnome package
is out of date.
Are you installing from source? I so, is your pkgsrc tree up to date? I
grep-ed all of the Makefiles in my up to date pkgsrc tree and found that only
gd, libwfm, magicpoint, xpdf, and enlightenment need freetype-lib and they are
all happy with 1.3.1.
I have gv, gnome-core, gnome-libs, and gnome-print installed and they're all
happy with freetype-lib-1.3.1, too.
