Over 4000 font files in there.

As for the problem with pkgsrc evince/poppler requiring fontconfig that
was caused by the official build system accidently didn't have the X11R7
sets installed. That is fixed now (so no longer a dependency).
But I still had problems with firefox (text content randomly
disappearing and replaced with black rectangles). So I decided to not
use the offical packages repo and used an alternative repo that use
modular X11 (and got firefox from there too) and now I am using pkgsrc's
modular-xorg-server instead of /usr/X11R7/.
This appears to work, but xulrunner did crash once. I think this may be
related to some threading issues in 6.0 but I don't know the details not
status of that. Anyone have details on that? (On a different note, I
have two other 6.0 systems that have software crashing with threads that
previously worked with 5.x.)
