I've installed 2.1.94. Sure makes the new Bitstream fonts look great.
Some suggestions - questions:
1. the fontconfig.spec file should have a Requires for freetype-2.1.4.
2. The present spec file overwrites local.conf. I thought local.conf was
where we put system-wide stuff that wouldn't be overwritten like
3. the local.conf that is put there is odd.

I don't know much - any - XML, but isn't it all commented out? Should it be
uncommented? Shouldn't it be in fonts.conf?
4. I have a dual boot machine. i'd like to use all the ttf fonts I have in
the windows font directory. But when I run fc-cache I get:
[root at amd1900 Fonts]# fc-cache -v .
fc-cache: ".": skipping, 240 fonts, 0 dirs
Which appears to mean it skipped all the fonts. I realize some ( maybe
10-15) are not truetype, but should it skip them all?
I then tried:
[root at amd1900 Fonts]# fc-cache -v -f /win/ddrive/Winnt/Fonts
fc-cache: "/win/ddrive/Winnt/Fonts": Segmentation fault
