FreeType comes with two licenses from which you can choose the one which fits your needs best.
The FreeType License is the most commonly used one. Full text here: http://www.freetype.org/FTL.TXT
It is a BSD-style license with a credit clause (and thus compatible with GPLv3 but not GPLv2).
The GNU General Public License (GPL), version 2.
For all projects which use GPLv2 also or which need a license compatible to the GPLv2.
