I can't verify this.  Since I'm still using an older version of XFree
I don't have fontconfig installed by default.  Instead, I just checked
out the CVS archive of fontconfig together with the latest version of
expat.  Compiling went fine (using current CVS), and the test program
`run-test.sh' works fine too.

This is very strange.  Theoretically, none of the changes should have
an impact if you recompile fontconfig.  Are you *sure* that you aren't
using an old FreeType dynamic library?
