Do you mean that you have libfreetype.so in /usr/lib/X11/modules/font,
but `find' can't locate it? If so, that sounds like some kind of
permissions problem, possibly with directories. If that's not an
issue, you might want to consider rebuilding xorg-server since that's
where those modules come from.
