It appears that libtool 1.5 has a bug which generates an incorrect ltmain.sh
that gets included in the fontconfig distribution.  The bug is harmless, 
and should go away when I get an updated version of libtool installed on 
the distribution generating machine.  You should also be able to avoid the 
problem by using 'libtoolize --force --copy' and then re-running autogen.sh

Current CVS should let you use '--disable-docs' to avoid the problem.
