> Hi Sebastian,
>     xetex: error while loading shared libraries: libfontconfig.so.1:
>     cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
> xetex innately depends on a system-installed libfontconfig, by design.

> You can rerun the command that failed:
> fmtutil-sys --no-error-if-no-engine=luajittex --byfmt xelollipop
> Thanks for the report,
