There was no portable way to enable hidden visibility when FreeType 2.0 was released. GCC's visibility attribute is much newer. (But, yes, they should have hidden their internal interfaces *somehow*.)

I can understand SNAFU with freetype 2.1, but why persist in folly ?

You are right, of course. Freetype 2.1 was released in 2002 and gcc only got visibility attribute in 2003. And other methods are not as nice. But we are in 2010 - and yet Freetype 2.3.12 (released just a few months ago) does not use visibility(hidden). Not even as option!
