Thanks to Onno from the Netherlands I have solved this issue.  For
future mailing list searches here's what I did.

Remove pkgsrc fontconfig unless your base system is too old.  The
version in base seems to be good enough.  This may or may not be a
necessary step.

Re-install x11-links.  Doing this may require rebuilding another
package (osabi) which will fail due to the dependency on x11-links.
Since x11-links cannot be deleted you will have to use the pkg_delete
-f option to get rid of osabi.  It will be rebuilt anyway in a moment.

Clean all of your object trees.  The cleanest way is to "rm
-rf /usr/obj/*" assuming that you have "WRKOBJDIR = /usr/obj" in your
mk.conf.  I strongly suggest doing this if you don't.

Run "make install" in x11-links.  Even though there is a version
installed this will replace it.

Carry on building your other packages such as cairo.
