Yes, that was a goof.  Actually I readded #ifdef HAVE_FREETYPE a little lower, 
but forgot to readd the #include "../config.h".  I think I probably rushed 
things since I was annoyed at having had to fix compilation in KDVI several 
I'm attaching the output from attempting to revert the revision from 1.11 to 
1.12 for TeXFont_PFB.cpp.
