The following files are no longer being used by fontconfig-2.4.0nb1,
and they can be removed if no other packages are using them:

They are dated Aug 30, 2005 and they were certainly installed by a previous
pkgsrc version of fontconfig -- I dunno about 'broken'.

No -- in that case, the 'old' files are the same as the 'new' files, so
BTW, if I haven't mentioned it recently (and I haven't) I'm glad that you
are keeping an eye on our DFly mail lists for pkgsrc problems. I thank
you on behalf of our entire staff! (Disclaimer: I'm not one of the DFly
staff, but I still thank you anyway ;o)
