how do you come to the conclusion it does?

if it would be so it would have been pulled and so he would not have 
needed "yum install bzip2-devel" - freetype and bzip2 have nothing in 
common here

hence people should learn to build packages and re-use / use 
BuildRequires, freetype is optional at all, but you need it installed 
when you specify to build with freetype support

BuildRequires:     bzip2-devel
BuildRequires:     imlib2-devel
BuildRequires:     lame-devel
BuildRequires:     libtheora-devel
BuildRequires:     x264-latest
BuildRequires:     zlib-devel
BuildRequires:     libvpx-devel
BuildRequires:     openssl-devel
BuildRequires:     yasm
