[Xorg] [PATCH] xorgconfig ignores FontDir

xorgconfig produces an xorg.conf with the default font paths
(/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/${fonttype}) even when fonts are installed elsewhere
(e.g., /usr/share/fonts) by defining FontDir at compile time.

The attached patch fixes this by creating a TREEROOTFONT that can be outside
of the usual tree if FontDir is defined. In the default case where FontDir is
not manually set, the patch defaults to previous behavior. This is a parallel
to what has already been done with TREEROOTDOC.

If there are no problems with this patch, I'd like to get it into this
release. The associated bug is #826.
