Re: fontconfig 2.2.0 - Ready for review

Hallo Harold,

I missed a point.  What about those who already have XFree86 installed
and do now an install of fontconfig in usr/... then I'll have the libs
and headers duplicated.  Probably it is not and issue because it is
the same version and will be a non-issue after updating the relevant
XFree packages.
