I find it rather appalling that there are two separate fontconfig things
installed once pkgsrc has had its go at a modern NetBSD system that
already has built-in fontconfig stuff of its own.
If the built-in fontconfig stuff in NetBSD is too old for many modern
packages then isn't it high time it was upgraded!?!?!?
