what has NFS to do with the endianes? :) this could only be a problem if you 
mount your home dir on 2 different unixes and you expect them to have 100% 
compatible fontconfig implementation. We can just put a marker in the file 
header that will serve as OS indicator and if the cache-file is from other 
os, fontconfig can simply re-create it. It's not a problem.
