This patch is very good for me.
I am a Chinese user.
But in Linux, I can't use chinese font well.
Including bold font...etc...can't display in Linux.

But firefly's patch solve these problems.

Each time I install linux, I have to patch them and recompiler.
It's not a convient thing for end user.

As a result, I holpe fontconfig can accept this patch... please...
