[  7:47AM /usr/include/freetype2/freetype ] grep FT_Get_TrueType_Engine_Type *
ftmodapi.h:   *     by the @FT_Get_TrueType_Engine_Type function.
ftmodapi.h:   *     FT_Get_TrueType_Engine_Type
ftmodapi.h:  FT_Get_TrueType_Engine_Type( FT_Library  library );

and i get bytecode hinting as an option. debian (and ubuntu) have a history of
shipping freetype with the bytecode hinting enabled.

all i can imagine is that you have a somehow messed up ft2 build.

[  7:50AM ~/C/evas/src/lib/engines/common ] grep FT_Get_TrueType_Engine_Type *.c
evas_font_load.c:        return FT_Get_TrueType_Engine_Type(evas_ft_lib) >=

         return FT_Get_TrueType_Engine_Type(evas_ft_lib) >=

ie check the code - if your minor ver >= 2 then it uses that function and
whatever it returns is used as a result, and if you don't have that function it
assumes you have bytecode hinting anyway (as there is no consistent way to check
that actually works where it should).

see the above - add a printf and see what that func actually returns - but i
bet you it is saying that it DOESNT do patented hinting.
