I found the answer. It had nothing to do with VASSAL.
Linux Mint 18.1 installs as default both the Java runtime JDK8 and JDK9.
JDK9 is only a development version and does not support Freetype fonts.
I had to uninstall JDK9 and then update Java alternatives:
$ sudo update-java-alternatives --auto
$ java -version
openjdk version "1.8.0_121"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.121-b13, mixed mode)
With openjdk 1.8.0_121 VASSAL works.
I hope this helps others on their way to use Linux.
