      Description

      Update FreeType to v. 2.8.1

      https://sourceforge.net/projects/freetype/files/freetype2/2.8.1/

      CHANGES BETWEEN 2.8 and 2.8.1
       
        I. IMPORTANT BUG FIXES
       
          - B/W  hinting   of  TrueType   fonts  didn't  work   properly  if
            interpreter version 38 or 40 was selected.
       
          - Some severe  problems within the handling  of TrueType Variation
            Fonts were found and fixed.
       
          - Function `FT_Set_Var_Design_Coordinates' didn't correctly handle
            the case with less input coordinates than axes.
       
       
        II. IMPORTANT CHANGES
       
          - By default,  FreeType  now offers  high  quality  LCD-optimized
            output  without resorting to ClearType techniques of resolution
            tripling and filtering.  In this method,  called Harmony,  each
            color channel is generated separately  after shifting the glyph
            outline,  capitalizing on the fact  that the color grids on LCD
            panels  are  shifted  by  a third  of  a pixel.  This output is
            indistinguishable from ClearType with a light 3-tap filter.
