It *is* in there, no delimiter out of place (copied it to a .c file and used 
vims syntax highlighting to check:

/* Begin Xorg host.def file */

/* System Related Information.  If you read and configure only one

#define DefaultGcc2i386Opt  -O2 -fno-strength-reduce \
                               -fno-strict-aliasing -march=athlon-xp
/* #define DefaultGcc2AMD64Opt -O2 -fno-strength-reduce \
                               -fno-strict-aliasing */
/* #define DefaultGcc2AxpOpt   -O2 -mcpu=ev6 */
/* #define DefaultGcc2PpcOpt   -O2 -mcpu=750 */

#define HasFreetype2            YES
#define HasFontconfig           YES
#define HasExpat                YES
#define HasLibpng               YES
#define HasZlib                 YES

And it *is* building and attempting to install fontconfig.  I'll dig around a 
bit.  Just back from work, so can't address this right now.

In the meantime, anyone with any ideas please.

The difference between common-sense and paranoia is that common-sense is
thinking everyone is out to get you.  That's normal -- they are.  Paranoia
is thinking that they're conspiring.
