Asy rebuild has not been attempted yet (and I experience the same
issues with the old binary; which wouldn't even work as it's an old
version anyway).

However I'm unable to reproduce the problem on xetex. For me it links
against libfreetype 6.

How old is this report / attempt? Can the binaries (other than asy and
xindy) be checked again?
