You mean that all registers and operators are based on 8bit entities?
This won't work with FreeType unless you have a library which emulates
16bit support.  Note that compilation on 16bit systems isn't tested
very well, and recent additions might have broken a clean build.
Nevertheless, the fixes should be trivial since we try hard to avoid
dependencies on a certain register depth to make FreeType work on 16,
32, and 64bit architectures.
