FreeDink does not play any MIDI sound regardless what version i've compiled, the Timidity is set up correctly to use a soundfont.

I am on Antergos (ArchLinux based), the current Timidity version is 2.14.0-7.

Never be afraid to ask, but don't demand an answer 
That's strange; I didn't think Dink used Timidity. At least for me, music sounds different when played with Timidity compared to how it plays in Dink, I'm guessing due to different sound banks.

There may be something wrong with your SDL setup, although I have no idea what can be wrong with it...

I've compiled the program normally some years ago on my Linux laptop and well, it had a MIDI music. But now on my main PC, it doesn't. FreeDink uses the SDL instead of SDL2 so i doubt there were any changes...unless it's Timidity itself.

I was reasonably sure that it was rewritten a few years ago to use SDL2, unless you're using an old build.
