display/drivers/lib/Text3.c appears to be the only file which depends
directly upon FreeType. Of the functions in that file:

+ The body of drawMain() should be conditionalised upon
HAVE_FT2BUILD_H, so that the function itself is a no-op if FreeType
isn't available.

+ Other functions which require FreeType should be conditionalised
upon HAVE_FT2BUILD_H, so that the function doesn't exist if FreeType
isn't available.

+ Functions which don't need to be exported (AFAICT, everything except
soft_text_freetype(), soft_text_ext_freetype() and get_text_ext_freetype())
should be declared "static".

The drivers and raster library will support the FONT_FREETYPE and
FONT_FREETYPE_RELEASE operations regardless of whether FreeType was
enabled, except that those operations won't actually work.
