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.)
