Credit requirement for FreeType

Description

Reportedly:

"The FreeType License, found in the file `FTL.TXT', which is similar to the original BSD license *with* an advertising clause that forces you to explicitly cite the FreeType project in your product's documentation"

Unfortunately there is no pkg-freetype-devel package and I'm not sure who is responsible for it (or the sister packages freetype-devel-mingw and freetype-mingw.

freetype is dual-licensed GPL or FTL. I build mingw packages were build independantly from the other freetype package by me for GRASS. I think usage in GRASS ties it to GPL.
