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

configuration file (though with autodiscovery, we believe this need is

you have installed, even if you have installed thousands of fonts,
while minimizing memory usage.

implement high quality, anti-aliased and subpixel rendered text on a

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:
Fix build with native X.org.

The installed version of this library was found and used instead of the
one build by the package, leading to problems when the pkgsrc one had
symbols the native one doesn't have. Add libtool path to compiler
search path to fix this.
