After portupgrading Xfree86 (and I think freetype2) yesterday, I 
couldn't start XFree86; it failed with:

(II) LoadModule: "freetype"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/fonts/libfreetype.a
(II) Module freetype: vendor="The XFree86 Project & the After X-TT 
	compiled for 4.4.0, module version = 2.1.0
	Module class: XFree86 Font Renderer
	ABI class: XFree86 Font Renderer, version 0.4
(II) Loading font FreeType
(II) LoadModule: "xtt"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/fonts/libxtt.a
Duplicate symbol SPropRecValList_new 
in /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/fonts/libxtt.a:xttmodule.o
Also defined in /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/fonts/libfreetype.a

Fatal server error:
Module load failure

This seems to be the same as this NetBSD bug report:


which says it can be reproduced by loading both the freetype and xtt 

Commenting out  Load "xtt"  from my XF86Config, got things working
