That's freetype2-lcd, which was deleted quite some time ago. From the comments:

"Dear All! Please use this build ONLY IF YOU'RE NOT SATISFIED with
default one or the build from eWoud
which are both superior!

Major differencies between this one and eWoud are:
1. Usage of linked "zlib" instead of built-in
2. No validation of GX/AAT and OpenType tables
3. No "memcpy-fix" and "bitmap" patches - IMHO - unnecessary,
otherwise they'd be included in official branch already

And there's no "quantization" patch in official Archlinux freetype2 build.

Please don't vote for my build and use it as a last resort only (or if
you wish to try "legacy" filter by modifying the tail of "ftoption.h"

I believe it adds nothing as of early 2009:


But I may be wrong, especially if this one has been doing something
which freetype2-lcd never did.
