Good question.  If your project uses the GPL (or something compatible
to GPL3), everything's fine.  Otherwise, you have to ensure that you
follow the licenses of *all* components in your project, including the
ones that are only used indirectly.

In other words, for closed-source projects you have to credit FreeType
(and probably other projects, too).
