Hi, my name is Christopher and a have a sort of hit and run question for
the fontconfig e-mail list. I've written a small game in C++, and I'm
trying to compile together a fairly portable binary, linking in
libraries statically whenever possible. I'm using the clanlib game
engine, which depends on libfreetype and libfontconfig. I wanted to
compile these libraries in statically also, but I kind of got the
impression from the libfontconfig home page that it wouldn't make much
sense to compile libfontconfig in statically because the user would need
to install it on his own anyway, at least in order to get the /etc
config files setup.

Anyway, since I'm a little vague on how libfreetype and libfontconfig
work, and I would appreciate it if anyone could provide any helpful
perspective here.
