I think you have the wrong concept.  Normally, you *define* the
baseline and put characters on it.

You put glyph after glyph onto a common baseline.  This is, you draw a
glyph, then moving the cursor to the right by the glyph's advance
width, drawing the next glyph, and so on.

There is plenty of documentation around in the net which explains this
further in case the FreeType tutorial doesn't suffice.
