The web page has been fixed.

This is a linker issue; freetype.a isn't included in the final VM link 
which it needs if you want to make FT2Plugin internal. I'm not sure how 
to deal with it in the long term, for now you can add the following line 
to winbuild/Makefile (after the STDLIBS definition):

STDLIBS += ../platforms/win32/plugins/FT2Plugin/freetype.a
