What Mike meant to say is that MacOSX does not include fontconfig 
functionality in the developer libraries, so he is building fontconfig 
version 2.8.0 and placing in outside of the systems files to prevent

This may be caused by a recent patch commited by AJ.  Also, this error 
does not happen with the built-in fontconfig provided with MacOSX 10.5 
and 10.6.

This should point to fontconfig's include files, but is it necessary to 
add in the library files as well?

Everything else appears to be building up to this point and then failure 

I cannot assist Mike with his regression efforts as I don't have an 
Intel Mac with MacOSX installed.  Using the Software Development Kit for 
MacOSX 10.4 does not force this error to happen as the MacOSX 
development libraries are used.
