Oh, that's almost certainly distro-dependent. Debian sticks the git
programs in /usr/lib/git-core. So, either /usr/libexec/fontconfig or
/usr/lib/fontconfig would be a fine plan, and of course distro packagers
would dtrt.

For automake, we would use pkglibexecdir and that should work for
everyone -- it'll be /usr/lib/fontconfig on debian and
/usr/libexec/fontconfig on redhat. Do we want to stick the fc-cache
variants in a fc-cache.d subdirectory so that the script can safely use
a simple filename glob pattern?
