Sorry to pup-up so late but I'm very busy these days.
I already have this freetype package for C6 in my personal repo, actually 
I've been using it for some days now without problems.
http://li.nux.ro/download/nux/dextop/el6/SRPMS/freetype-freeworld-2.4.4-6.el6.nux.src.rpm

(packages also available for i386 and x86_64)

It's a shameless rebuild from rpmfusion. I guess it could be a good starting 
point.
