The first can be done. Actually, should be done, and I already have a  
configure.ac patch that uses pkgconfig to find fontconfig.
But why does it need a manually updated fontconfig ? Can you please  
explain? we can always add fontconfig to extras/contrib if we need  
to. It will be less then optimal, but it would work.

A Quartz renderer would be a much better solution of course. We would  
more then welcome that.
