That doesn't seem to be quite the right syntax, as it actually makes no difference.  I tried some variations like:

/Utilities/vtkfreetype/* -whitespace

which makes it stop complaining for files within /Utilities/vtkfreetype itself, but no for subfolders.

It seems "*" is not recursive.... My googling thus far has not revealed how to make it recursive as you surely intended in your suggestion above.
