Yes, you're right, although 'local.conf' is fairly deprecated these days
with conf.d available.

Any suggestions on where the unused config files should

and /usr/share/doc/fontconfig/examples all have their merits...

As usual, phantom bugs abound. I may end up closing this and waiting to
see if people have troubles with current FreeType/fontconfig setups.
