Fontconfig 2.5.0 is available for Solaris 10 as a patch from SunSolve.

The options we use to configure 2.5.0 for Solaris 10 include:
	--enable-shared=yes --enable-static=no \
	--with-expat-includes=/usr/sfw/include \
        --with-expat-lib=/usr/sfw/lib --prefix=/usr \
        --with-confdir=/etc/fonts --with-cache-dir=/var/cache/fontconfig \
