Funny, i've just installed it on my workstation and it runs fine 
Are you sure the rpm is not corrupted ? 
running md5sum on the rpm package returns me : 
9ee24b6c4fbd3afad89c96b63baca06b  picasa-2.2.2820-5.i386.rpm
Have you the same thing ?
the libfreetype.so (as well as libfreetype.so.6) is a symlink to
libfreetype.so.6.3.8 in the same /opt/picassa/lib/ directory ..
