From 2.9 -> 2.9.1 changelog:

'The `configure' script no longer installs `freetype-config' by default. For backwards compatibility, a new configure option `--enable-freetype-config' is provided that reverts this decision.'

Additional info:
Even though the script is deprecated, there are some packages that still require it being present to build correctly (ran into this while building texlive stuff from source).

I can confirm passing --enable-freetype-config to ./configure during prepare() phase fixes the issue.
This task depends upon
