Excellent, I had noticed recently that we were switching on a
"supportFontconfig" variable to show/hide a bunch of stuff in spadmin to
handle installing fonts in a pre-fontconfig X based environment and
removed a massive whack of stuff which is never enabled for use off
that. I noticed some of that stuff in passing, good to see it gone too.

With a bit of luck we can continue simplifying the X text and font
