there's more to cache files than bitsize and endian.  look at fcarch.h --
it mixes in alignment of doubles too.  there's also pdp endian, but that's
probably never been tested anywhere, and fontconfig should just delete it.

installing multiple files might help with multilib builds, but it doesn't
help with cross-compiling.  it would be nice if fc-cache could deal with
the size/endian/alignment issues at runtime, then you only need one bin.
