    incorrectly linked executables on FreeBSD

Thanks for the report.

I don't use FreeBSD, so I can't solve it, sorry. I can only report that
Nikola compiled last year's binaries on FreeBSD 10.

whereas this year's binaries are compiled by Mojca on FreeBSD 11.

I'm only guessing, but it sounds like using shared lib foo.x on an older
system may fail on the newest system because only .x+1 is available, or
because of indirect dependencies (likely through fontconfig) on .x or .x+1.

I hope Nikola or Mojca can reply with more facts/help. --best, karl.
