Cygwin font problems

Is anyone aware of (a fix for) problems I'm having getting PIL 1.1.5 to
create bitmaps using TrueType and openType fonts? When I create an image
using the standard PIL fonts everything seems fine, but when I use
ImageFont.truetype(<font-file>, <size>) no text is drawn.
setup.py reports from debug print statements that it's finding freetype21.
The same code using (Fredrik's pre-built binary) on Windows runs
correctly and produces correct images.
Cygwin runs Python 2.4.1, Windows runs 2.4. Any light on this mystery
