Some packages seem to have exceeded the fontconfig version that the base
supplies. E.g.

.include "../../fonts/fontconfig/"

the fontconfig buildlink has

BUILDLINK_API_DEPENDS.fontconfig+=      fontconfig>=2.11.91
BUILDLINK_ABI_DEPENDS.fontconfig+=      fontconfig>=2.13.1nb1

While the base has:
lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel      20 Oct 19  2020
/usr/X11R7/lib/ ->

So far I have added only freetype2 in PREFER_PKGSRC and builds of all
broken packages are going on. Will update if I get more observations.

PREFER_PKGSRC = freetype2
