Ok I can think of one myself.  It's a problem in other projects too.

Having them separate makes it easier to run a newer ftview (say, with a new feature), against older freetype / multiple versions of freetype for comparison.  That, however, would work find if like other projects one could run "make install" within src/.  With FreeType's currently build system it's an all-or-nothing.  So, we'd need to revamp the build system a bit before the merge can happen.
