As computers evolve, we risk losing classic games from the
not-so-distant past. One of these, Ultima 7, an RPG from the early
1990's, still has a huge following, and many consider it to be one of
the most immersive games ever produced.

Exult is a project to recreate Ultima 7 for modern operating systems,
using the game's original plot, data, and graphics files. It enables
play of Ultima VII: The Black Gate and Ultima VII Part Two: Serpent
Isle, and their corresponding expansion disks Forge of Virtue and
Silver Seed, on modern machines.

In order to play these games, data files from the original games are

Try to fix the fallout caused by the fix for PR pkg/47882. Part 3:

Recursively bump package revisions again after the "freetype2" and
"fontconfig" handling was fixed.

Log message:
Bump freetype2 and fontconfig dependencies to current pkgsrc versions,
to address issues with NetBSD-6(and earlier)'s fontconfig not being
new enough for pango.

While doing that, also bump freetype2 dependency to current pkgsrc
