Personally I always move out of the way the fontconfig-related files that come
with X,(headers, libs, pkgconfig file) and use the ones from the fontconfig
package. FWIW, I do the same for xrender, render and xft2. If you're going to
use a separate package it's bound to be more up to date than what a stable X
release has.
