I don't think this is feasible with autoconf. If you don't to install
these programs, you have two possible approaches:
A) Simply distribute the generated files with the fontconfig
distribution; we do this for various source files in GTK+
that require more exotic dependencies to regenerate.
B) Allow the user to point the build at a natively compiled
uninstalled tree of fontconfig.
