Perhaps. Still, there's more to freetype2 than just the hinting and rendering;
there's also font management, font file reading and writing, etc.
For instance, it can handle Postscript Type 1, TrueType, BDF, PCF, various
bitmap fonts, etc.
libfreetype2 on my system is about 437K.
I believe that it can be compiled without various features to make it smaller,
