[Fontconfig] What sets the Cache file size on windows?

I received an off list reply suggesting that "Dependency Walker" be 
applied to the executables.
That resolved the issue - ft_example.exe was picking up an older 
fontconfig-1.dll from a directory
listed in the command shell path.  The only way I found NOT to use that 
was to copy the
ft_example.exe into the same directory as Inkscape.exe and then run it 
there.  (Removing that
directory from the PATH in MSYS did not help.)  When done like that 
ft_example created the larger/newer cache,
and Inkscape and ft_example happily used the same cache.
