I'm testing the cache dir.  First, the following error message is
not quite accurate anymore:

[behdad at home fc-cache]$ fc-cache
Can't save cache in "/home/behdad/.fonts"
Can't save cache in "/home/behdad/.fonts/farsifonts-0.4"

A simple fix is to change "in" to "for", or better, print out the
cache directory (once?).

As for creating the cache dir, the simplest way is:

Index: fc-cache/Makefile.am
RCS file: /cvs/fontconfig/fontconfig/fc-cache/Makefile.am,v
retrieving revision
diff -u -p -r1.10.4.1 Makefile.am
--- fc-cache/Makefile.am        9 Dec 2005 16:36:45 -0000
+++ fc-cache/Makefile.am        10 Dec 2005 07:17:34 -0000
@@ -29,6 +29,11 @@ SGML = ${FC_CACHE_SRC}/fc-cache.sgml

 AM_CPPFLAGS = -DPKGCACHEDIR='"${pkgcachedir}"'

+       touch $@


which abuses the install features of automake to create the
