cairo-ft-font is just the Freetype font backend. It's usually used on 
Linux, but other platforms can use it too (e.g. my BeOS backend uses it, 
lacking another backend that works on BeOS), although I'm not sure if 
Windows can. Anyway, if you don't have fontconfig+freetype, you 
shouldn't build it.

The Windows font backend is cairo-win32-font.c. (Hm... doesn't it work 
for Win64 too? :-) )
