You need to use FcFontSort instead of FcFontMatch. This returns a list of
fonts in preference order; applications like pango and mozilla then search
the list of fonts for the first one supporting each character and use that
Xft could use some helper APIs to make this easier for applications; right
now it takes quite a bit of application code.
