Here is the patch which is required for freetype 2.3.9
I did build freetype with this patch and can confirm that it fixes the navit
This has been fixed for the Community SSU Updates in package

(Note: 21.2011.38-1 is the latest official Nokia version.
The number after it indicates the Community SSU release version.)
