If we don't find any terrible issues in 2.3.95 I'd like to just relabel
these files as fontconfig 2.4.0 in two weeks' time, that is, for May 10.

- From the README file:

Match 'Standard Symbols L' for 'Symbol'.  Add URW fonts as aliases for
all of the PostScript fonts.  (reported by Miguel Rodriguez).  Fix a
number of Coverity defects (Frederic Crozat).  Speed up FcFontSort
(fix suggested by Kenichi Handa).  Fix error with charsets.  Survive
missing docbook2pdf.  Compile on HP-UX, AIX, SGI and Windows (Cygwin,
MinGW).  Fix intel compiler warnings.  Fix multiarch support (don't
destroy multiarch files!)  Require pkg-config.  (Thanks Behdad; better
solution wanted for libxml2 detection!)  Fix typos in orth files and
add orth for Lingala (reported by Denis Jacquerye).  Remove debian/
directory.  Add a configuration file that disables hinting for the
Lohit Gujarati font (since the hinting distorts some glyphs quite
badly).  Sort directory entries while scanning them from disk;
prevents Heisenbugs due to file ordering in a directory (due to Egmont
Koblinger).  Fix Wine's problem with finding fonts.  (Reported by
Bernhard Rosenkraenzer.)  Fix the issues with GNU libiconv vs. libc
iconv (which especially appear on Solarii); patch by Behdad Esfahbod,
approach suggested by Tim Mooney.
