I get 

% fc-cat Type1 |egrep Conden|cut -c-78
"n019043l.pfb" 0 "Nimbus Sans L:style=Regular Condensed:slant=0:weight=80:widt
"n019044l.pfb" 0 "Nimbus Sans L:style=Bold Condensed:slant=0:weight=200:width=
"n019063l.pfb" 0 "Nimbus Sans L:style=Regular Condensed Italic:slant=100:weigh
"n019064l.pfb" 0 "Nimbus Sans L:style=Bold Condensed Italic:slant=100:weight=2

Why the difference? Your configuration treats Condensed as part of the
family; mine treats it as part of the style.
