This looks a little like either a C++ name mangling issue (could you
have used two different versions of g++ in the compiling of mpl or
it's dependencies) or else a discrepancy between which freetype
include headers are found and which libraries you are linking with.
Nadia was working on a patch to statically include freetype and
similar libs. STScI folks: is this still in the works?
