[Fontconfig] Webdings and other MS symbol fonts don't display

None of the MS symbol fonts displays with recent fontconfig (2.11.93).

This is probably due to commit cbb6ee16 (Bug 35517 - Remove Apple Roman cmap
support). Although commit d6d5adeb (Fix symbol cmap handling) stated to have
fixed it, I cannot confirm. I can confirm, however, that version 2.8.0 works

So, is there any chance to make the MS symbol fonts (Webdings, Symbol,
Wingdings) display with fontconfig again?

I can provide help in testing if needed.
