if it's indeed RH bug 532718, which is a thing between fontconfig 2.7 
(including 2.6.9x), and fontconfig < 2.6.9x, then you're running two 
fontconfig versions on these systems, suggesting a heterogenous, 
networked environment or applications that come with their own 
fontconfig, maybe even linked statically! So good luck...

A few pointers where you can look for installed fontconfig versions:

* fontconfig.h files
* fontconfig.pc files
* fontconfig.so files (link them with a C program that calls 
FcGetVersion() or use a Perl Inline::C snippet etc.)

In the end, maybe you can keep your existing binaries and use different 
fontconfig config files with each (with $FONTCONFIG_FILE), that instruct 
them to use distinct cache locations...
