Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.13.0nb1, Package name: fontconfig-2.13.0nb1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Fontconfig is a library for configuring and customizing font access.

Fontconfig can:
* discover new fonts when installed automatically, removing a common
source of configuration problems.
* perform font name substitution, so that appropriate alternative fonts
can be selected if fonts are missing.
* identify the set of fonts required to completely cover a set of
languages.
* have GUI configuration tools built as it uses an XML-based
configuration file (though with autodiscovery, we believe this need is
minimized).
* efficiently and quickly find the fonts you need among the set of fonts
you have installed, even if you have installed thousands of fonts,
while minimizing memory usage.
* be used in concert with the X Render Extension and FreeType to
implement high quality, anti-aliased and subpixel rendered text on a
display.

Fontconfig does not:
* render the fonts themselves (this is left to FreeType or other
rendering mechanisms).
* depend on the X Window System in any fashion, so that printer only
applications do not have such dependencies.

Log message:
Since fontconfig depends on devel/gettext-lib (as of 2.13.0nb1),
anything depending on fontconfig does too. Add it to buildlink3.mk.
This is a high-impact change to commit during the freeze, but seems both
correct and necessary, and has wiz@'s OK.

Log message:
Since fontconfig wants to build message catalogs now, depend on msgfmt.

Log message:
Fix inverted logic for the conditional uuid dependency.

The buildlink3.mk should be included for OSes _except_ Darwin.

The proper fix for this would be to have a devel/libuuid/builtin.mk that
detects builtinness.

Do not look for libuuid on Darwin, it is built-in.
