Hi all,

I'm trying the latest windows pharo VM 64bits
(pharo-win-x86_64-201901051900-7a3c6b6.zip from
http://files.pharo.org/vm/pharo-spur64/win/) to see how reproducible are
the problems with freetype, athens and the bitblt. While in that I've found
that libcairo does not load due to a bad naming of libfreetype. I had
libfreetype.dll, and renaming it to libfreetype-6.dll made it loadable

The 32bit windows VM that corresponds to the same commit, the freetype
library file is also named libfreetype.dll but there it works.

I've found that the specs for freetype for win64 in that commit are right:


but maybe the default ones are used?


Does somebody know what else could be causing this?
