There's ticket in the trac for pango 1.32.6 which also needs unstable
Fontconfig. Some libraries have been made thread safe, and need other
thread safe libraries to work perfectly. In this case, first threadsafe
version of Fontconfig was 2.10.91, Pango 1.32.6 ... Others were Gdk
Pixbuf and librsvg iirc ...
