When I build for native Win32 (in the msys shell, using MinGW port of 
gcc-4.7.0) the library that gets built always seems quite serviceable, but 
'make check' always fails the test. (This has been happening for quite some 
time - it is by no means a *recent* development.)

FAIL: run-test.sh
make[4]: Entering directory `/c/comp/fontconfig-2.10.94/test'
make[4]: Nothing to be done for `all'.
make[4]: Leaving directory `/c/comp/fontconfig-2.10.94/test'

(If, as the message, I try to go to 
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/enger_bug.cgi?product=fontconfig I get a 404 

When I examine the 'out' file, I find it contains simply:

I'm a bit puzzled as to why the "$FCLIST - family pixelsize  | sort > out" 
commands in run-test.sh are producing no output - not even an error message 
as best I can tell.

$FCLIST expands to '../fc-list/fc-list.exe' and if I cd to the 'test' 
directory and manually run the command I get the following:

sisyphus at Owner-PC311012 /c/comp/fontconfig-2.10.94/test
$ ../fc-list/fc-list.exe - family pixelsize | sort > out
Fontconfig error: Cannot load default config file

But I haven't found a way to obtain that error when running './run-test.sh' 
(even if I amend that test script so that errors are redirected to a file).

Any ideas on what's going on here, and how best to proceed ?
