I don't see a problem yet either... I'm trying to look up what the  
problem was at the time.

Here I have a note from a bug which says that freetype 2.2.1 caused  
problems for fontconfig 2.3.2: 

Perhaps those problems no longer exist in the current fontconfig  
2.4.2. (I tried uninstalling and reinstalling fontconfig 2.4.2 after  
upgrading to freetype 2.3.2 and that seemed to work ok.)

I'll see if I can uncover any other info about the problems that were  
encountered back then...
