That bug is now world readable.
I don't know how the 64 bit fc-cache could possibly generate a 32 bit
.fonts.cache, since it just doesn't know what the memory layout is going
to be like on the 32 bit arch. Because of this, it seems like the best
solution is what used to work and regressed: if you have an exclusively
64 bit fonts.cache-2, then you generate a 32-bit .fonts.cache-2. That
should be a simple bug that I should be able to fix.
Stanislav Brabec is not well-informed. Having a local .fonts.cache-2 in
no way prevents fontconfig from using ~/.fonts.conf and from caching
local fonts. Also, please do not patch your fontconfig to generate
.fonts.cache-2-64 and .fonts.cache-2-32. That would be completely wrong.
