I tried ash and pdksh, both running in EPM. The weird character doesn't 
mean much. After adding a sed transform (PATH=`cmd.exe /c "echo %PATH%" 
| sed -e 's@\\\\@/@g'`) to config.site the error becomes

checking for freetype-config... i:/mzfntcfgft/bin/freetype-config
checking freetype2 libtool version... awk: cmd. line:1: {printf("%d\n", 
10000* + 100* + )};
awk: cmd. line:1:                                 ^ parse error
awk: cmd. line:1: {printf("%d\n", 10000* + 100* + )};
awk: cmd. line:1:                                 ^ parse error
9.7.3 - Too old

and as I mentioned basically the same code works fine with release 1.7.4.
Anyways I fixed the pkg-config files so now configure finds Freetype 
fine. Still this is a strange error.
