This looks ok, because...

... the wrapper ensures that the right DLL version of FreeType gets
used.  If you call the binary in `.libs' directly, it uses the
system-wide FreeType DLL, which is obviously version 2.6.3.

You should read the info pages of `libtool' for more information.
Otherwise, you might consider static compilation of the library, than
all version issues are completely avoided.
