I spoke with a windows developer here and he told me that freetype is 
statically linked in to the mapserver binaries we produce for windows, 
so it  wouldn't be a separate dll.

Did you build mapserver from source or are you using a binary version 
like the one found in the ms4w package?

There is a useful (free) tool for windows called dependency walker  
(www.dependencywalker.com) that will show you which, if any, dynamic 
libraries are missing for a given binary. You could just open your 
mapscript dll in this application to see whether there is a problem.
