We're using bsd.fontconfig.properties which is apparantly (mostly) just a
copy of linux.fontconfig.Fedora.properties.  The attached patch fixes it,
ok to commit?

I'm not sure whether we should explicitly depend on the used fonts though.
I've added a dependency on DejaVu (covers a lot of scripts, including
Latin) and a commented one on ja-sazanami-ttf (Japanese) and baekmuk-ttf
(Korean).  The Chinese fonts are not in pkgsrc and I have no idea which
could replace them. :-)
