it's exactly the same: when freetype was downgraded to 2.8 the SlackBuild files were left untouched

you shouldn't need to apply any patches to enable the infinality font mode with newer freetypes, it should be enough to configure it in /etc/profile.d/freetype.sh
Code:
#!/bin/sh
# Configure Freetype properties. Here this is used to set the default mode
# for font hinting. Other controllable properties are listed in the section
# 'Controlling FreeType Modules' in the reference's table of contents.
#
# Three hinting settings are available:

# This is the classic hinting mode used in Freetype 2.6.x:
#export FREETYPE_PROPERTIES="truetype:interpreter-version=35"

# This is Infinality mode, which was never enabled by default. It is slower
# than the new subpixel hinting mode, but said to be more accurate:
export FREETYPE_PROPERTIES="truetype:interpreter-version=38"

# This is the new default subpixel hinting mode used in Freetype 2.7.x. It is
# derived from the Infinality code base stripped to the bare minimum with all
# configurability removed in the name of speed and simplicity:
#export FREETYPE_PROPERTIES="truetype:interpreter-version=40"
