Ulrike, this is easier said than done.  The installer doesn't know
where fontconfig files are located and deriving it from fc-conflist
isn't sufficient either.  There is no fontconfig directory in the
user's HOME directory by default and the one in /etc is not writable
by mortal users.  The only reliable solution is to give some hints in
the documentation.
