This patch doesn't do what you're saying. The effect of this patch is
to always blow away cache files when -f is given, and that's going to be
problematic on multi-arch installations. The check a couple of lines above:
if (!force && FcDirCacheValid (dir) && FcDirCacheHasCurrentArch (dir))
checks for cache validity and ought to ensure that -f will try to save
the cache files. Of course it might fail for some other reason.
-f works for me. Does it not work for you? What should the semantics
of -f be? Perhaps there should be -f and --really-force, which would
always remove cache files; that's certainly not what we want to give
when we make install.
