While preparing the XFree86 4.3 release for NetBSD I'm wondering what
to do about the new /etc/fonts directory introduced by Keith Packard's
'fontconfig' utility. In keith's mind this is meant to be used by more
than just the X server (printing application may also use it to get
their fonts for instance), hence the system wide location. 

Given that NetBSD is already setting UseSeparateConfDir to NO to avoid
installing things in /etc/X!1, should the fontconfig dir also be moved
to /usr/X11R6/etc/fonts on NetBSD ?
