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
* have GUI configuration tools built as it uses an XML-based
configuration file (though with autodiscovery, we believe this need is
* 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

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:
fonts/fontconfig: Bump bl3 API_dEPENDS to 2.11.91

If the base fontconfig is old, and some but not all fontconfig-using
packages need newer, we end up with some binaries having two different
fontconfigs.  Adjust fontconfig's API_DEPENDS to 2.11.91, because
pango needs at least that.  This means that pkgsrc fontconfig will
always be used on netbsd-8.

The only sound approach appears to be a hard choice of system vs
pkgsrc fontconfig, without per-package overrides, but that's a bigger
step.  We could also consider changing API_DEPENDS to match the pkgsrc
fontconfig, so base is only used if newer.

(Needs a revbump.)

As discussed on tech-pkg.

Log message:
fontconfig: ignore errors from this command.

Besides native xorg+xorg sets, modular xorg, there is also
native xorg+no xorg sets, and apparently the build doesn't fail in
this case.
