+The  FreeType 2  font  engine is  copyrighted  work and  cannot be  used
+legally  without a  software license.   In  order to  make this  project
+usable  to a vast  majority of  developers, we  distribute it  under two
+mutually exclusive open-source licenses.
+
+This means  that *you* must choose  *one* of the  two licenses described
+below, then obey  all its terms and conditions when  using FreeType 2 in
+any of your projects or products.
+
+  - The FreeType License, found in  the file `FTL.TXT', which is similar
+    to the original BSD license *with* an advertising clause that forces
+    you  to  explicitly cite  the  FreeType  project  in your  product's
+    documentation.  All  details are in the license  file.  This license
+    is  suited  to products  which  don't  use  the GNU  General  Public
+    License.
+
+    Note that  this license  is  compatible  to the  GNU General  Public
+    License version 3, but not version 2.
+
+  - The GNU General Public License version 2, found in  `GPLv2.TXT' (any
+    later version can be used  also), for programs which already use the
+    GPL.  Note  that the  FTL is  incompatible  with  GPLv2 due  to  its
+    advertisement clause.
+
+The contributed BDF and PCF drivers come with a license similar  to that
+of the X Window System.  It is compatible to the above two licenses (see
+file src/bdf/README and src/pcf/README).
+
+The gzip module uses the zlib license (see src/gzip/zlib.h) which too is
+compatible to the above two licenses.
+
+The MD5 checksum support (only used for debugging in development builds)
+is in the public domain.
