It's a freetype problem, most likely.  I've been trying to find time to
work on it, but haven't been too successful so far.  The long and the
short of it is that none of the freetype versions so far are 64-bit clean,
so you'll probably see segfaults whenever you try to open a PDF that uses
TrueType fonts, unfortunately.
