Description of problem:
Running "rpm -q --requires fontconfig" mentions
freetype >= 2.1.2-7
However, I was running freetype-2.1.3-6, and found that gdmchooser
failed once I upgraded to fontconfig-2.2.1-6.1.
Unfortunately, the exact error message has scrolled off my terminal,
but it was an undefined symbol error or something like that.
Upgrading to freetype-2.1.4-5 cured the problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Take a RHL 9 system.
2. Use yum to install XFree86 from Fedora Core.
3. Watch it pull in a newer fontconfig but not a newer freetype.
