I think we can bikeshed the directory name for months if we like, but I
think FHS would prefer /usr/lib/fontconfig instead. Sticking directories
in /usr/bin seems "wrong" to me at some level.

I did check and at least 'bash' appears to ignore directories in
/usr/bin for the purposes of tab completion and finding commands along
$PATH, so it doesn't seem like this would do any harm.
