commit 40e27f5d989ef4e40d218624de0a51de3de43177

    Better document sysroot.
    All non trivial users of FontConfig must use FcConfigGetSysRoot to
    resolve file properties in patterns. In order to support sysroot the
    filename in the file property must be relative to the sysroot, but the
    value of the file property in a pattern is directly exposed, making it
    impossible for FontConfig to resolve the filename itself transparently.
