[tex-live] xdvipdfmx build problem

    I'm right, then obviously configure needs to check this better.)

So it would seem.

    should attempt a static build of fontconfig within TL, to avoid the  

I think "we" should (ie, you :), if you can find the time).  For all the
same reasons that we include all the other libraries.

    but it's unclear whether this would work if the distro  
    is using a customized FC configuration.

Can "we" (again, ie, you :) try an experiment along those lines?  Write
to some FC mailing list for advice?  Ask other people to try some test
binaries?  I dunno ...

I've never looked at FC myself, at all, so I'm just shooting in the
dark, sorry ...

Thanks much,
