The wording of the warning displayed by the bytecode variant could be improved. This came to me by email:

If the 'bytecode' variant of the FreeType MacPort is chose, the following text is displayed:
You may want not to compile a bytecode interpreter into the TrueType driver. Without this you will only compile the code necessary to load TrueType glyphs without hinting.
I do not understand what this paragraph is trying to tell me. Could it be reworded so that the text is "By enabling the bytecode interpreter, it will cause the library to ..." ? Or perhaps "By enabling the bytecode interpreter, you will be unable to ...".
The second sentence uses the word "without" twice, which makes it difficult to understand what is enabled and what is disabled.
