It may yet be too early to get a definite answer about this, but I'm
wondering what the status of the formerly patented bytecode interpreter
in freetype will be in RHEL/Centos 6 and possibly future updates to
RHEL/Centos 5.

The patent on the technology has apparently now expired.
http://freetype.sourceforge.net/patents.html and

Effective with freetype 2.4 the technology will enabled by default at
the freetype website.  I just checked and the version in the RHEL 6 beta
appears to be 2.3.11
