Thanks, this is useful information for the future. wrt ffmpeg, it is written
in C and I made sure I called the stenv before the FcInit.

But no worries.

I will patch fontconfig to use a relative directory. Since I'm compiling
fontconfig as a static lib and ffmpeg as a static binary, there is no harm in
doing this.
