The answer is yes. But you can verify this by executing mapserv -v at
the command prompt (after setting setenv.bat) and looking for
"SUPPORTS=FREETYPE" in the output, or also going to
http://127.0.0.1/phpinfo_mapscript.php in a web browser and looking in
the "MapScript" section for that same output string.
Also, you can download the "PHP/MapScript Sample Application" addon MS4W
http://www.maptools.org/ms4w/index.phtml?page=downloads.html, which uses
truetype fonts for labelling, to use as a guide.
