Let me guess ... you are running XFree86 from cvs/head, no?

The cause for your problem is that the former lib/freetype2
directory of the XFree86 sources has been abandoned with
change 196. (see CHANGELOG), and FreeType 2.1.4 has been
included. It is stored in extras/ and not installed by
default yet. The old "freetype-config" is now wrongly installed
with this @LIBZ@ statement. So, do a "vi `which freetype-config`"
and replace @LIBZ@ with "-lz", and/or install 2.1.4 from the
extras/freetype2 directory (not the extras/FreeType dir!).

This has nothing to do with KDE.
