Hmm, if there is no system fontconfig on OSX it would seem only fair to 
include something analogous to the existing DllMain in fccfg.c, where 
FONTCONFIG_PATH defaults to ../etc/fonts relative to the binary if the 
latter is in a directory called "lib" or "bin". After all the API you 
mentioned seems to be pretty standard on that platform. Then ffmpeg 
wouldn't have an issue, right?
