I took a look. fontconfig's works as intended and sets
USE_BUILTIN.fontconfig to yes.

But then the infrastructure overrides it:


This means that buildlink3 decided that the builtin fontconfig can't
be used because it depends on libuuid, and libuuid is not builtin.
(Instead a uuid implementation is included in xsrc's fontconfig, but
pkgsrc doesn't know that.)

I have no idea what the fix is.
