Summary0002542: VTK's freetype needs to be mangled
DescriptionQt can use the system freetype or its own. VTK can use its own or the system. If they both don't use the system one, problems can occur. On some systems, any Qt & VTK application crashes on startup because of this.

Did more research on this. Qt doesn't include its own freetype. Instead, it has wrapper/helpers for using system freetype if the system has it. If the system doesn't have freetype installed, Qt doesn't use freetype at all.

So, using VTK_USE_SYSTEM_FREETYPE is good enough. In CMake, one can inspect the file libqt-mt.prl for xftfreetype and decide to turn VTK_USE_SYSTEM_FREETYPE on/off.

Lessen severity.

Utkarsh already did this.
