-1. Just use the cairo_strtod all the time. We don't use non ANSI C
functions with #include guarded fallbacks in cairo. It adds to source
code bloat and one side of the #if won't get regularly tested.

I pulled your latest changes (a827d7e5) and updated fontconfig to
Behdad's latest changes (ff5d57bd).

I'm getting a test failure running font-variations. The test log is:

axis Weight, value 19660800
axis CNTR, value 0
Axis Weight: not expected value (19660800 != 13107200)

I have tried both the otf and ttf version of the Adobe Variable Font
Prototype v1.003. Same result for both.

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Could the test be sensitive to my
fontconfig configuration? I am using Debian Stretch.

In font-variations.c, FT_Get_Var_Design_Coordinates() will need an
#include guard for FreeType >= 2.8.
