After going through the entire mail thread again...

Don't you think, it might be a good idea to give fontconfig the option to
search in ./fontconfig/ first, before looking in PREFIX/etc or --sysconfdir?

To be more flexible an additional configure option could be used:

e.g.: --relative-fontconfig-path[=path]

What do you think? Doesn't this make any sense?
