local.conf should probably also be done that way, then, too.

I've seen some such crashes which were dependent on the version of
freetype in use. MultiMaster fonts, particularly, caused problems for
one client. I *think* current freetype does not cause that problem,
though I'm not certain that fc/xft will do the right thing when asked
to use an MM font at a given set of weight/width settings. Or maybe
it was only fc-match that didn't. In any case I ended up recommending
not to bother with the MM fonts for anything other than TeX....
I can't find the other fonts which I had troubles with. Either they
are no longer a problem or I dumped them someplace other than my usual
dumping ground of /var/preserve....
