Your compiler does not find the freetype library. It may be because it is not installed on your system.

You have to install the freetype libs (a free truetype font library IIRC). Search for the DevC++ freetype package. (I hope there's one)

If freetype is installed, perhaps your library path is wrong.
search for a libfreetype.a file and add the directory in which it is to the library path in devc++
