The usage of FcPatternAddInteger() is good though I'm wondering why you
didn't set monospace to FC_FAMILY instead. that would gives you more easier
way to do similar thing, but anyway.

Since FC_SPACING also affects to the score estimation, looking good to you
when getting rid of that line was just happened to work.  As I mentioned in
the previous mail, mistake to what you want to do may be you did give
FcTrue to trim in FcFontSort (). you can try to compare the result of
fc-match -s and -a. that may helps to understand what I told you in the
previous mail.
