Nice, but now they conflict with the woody backports of xfree86 4.3
listed at http://www.apt-get.org/list.php?site=236, which is needed for
many newer videocards. Yes, I know, by mixing backports I risk these
kind of problems.

So I'll stick with the previous gnome2.2 which includes freetype 2.1.3,
or maybe upgrade my desktops to unstable :-(.  I'm open to better
suggestions though.

Best regards,
