Yes, fontconfig gave me quite a lot of difficulty when I tried
installing it earlier this week - had to make a number of changes to the
build stuff to get it to work. I haven't tried pango and co yet though -
being on a 56k line, I'm going to wait until the official release of
gnome 2.1, whenever that is...
