That's a bug then, and must be fixed before fontconfig 2.4 can be
shipped. The requirement for 2.4 is to offer precisely the same ABI as
the old version, and share the same .so major version.

Please submit a but report to bugs.freedesktop.org and supply as many
details as you muster, including the distribution and version of the
other libraries in the system.

Also useful would be a stack trace of where your applications are

It may well depend on the fonts you have present on your system or
the .so version of FreeType that you have, or some other unknown
