I re-installed the old config files (which I saved) and did a new
rebuild/reinstall of fontconfig:
=> Running POST-INSTALL script actions
Installing files needed by fontconfig-2.4.0nb1:
<many similar lines snipped for brevity>
/usr/pkg/etc/fontconfig/fonts.conf already exists. <-----------
/usr/pkg/etc/fontconfig/fonts.dtd already exists. <-----------
/usr/pkg/lib/X11/fonts: failed to write cache
/usr/pkg/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi: failed to write cache
<many similar lines snipped>
As I previously posted, those 'failed to write cache' errors disappear
when I manually update /usr/pkg/etc/fontconfig.
I would have posted my problem to the pkgsrc mail lists, except that
my NetBSD-current machine never had this problem. (No idea why.)
