what has NFS to do with the endianes? :) this could only be a problem if yo=
mount your home dir on 2 different unixes and you expect them to have 100%=
compatible fontconfig implementation. We can just put a marker in the file=
header that will serve as OS indicator and if the cache-file is from other=
os, fontconfig can simply re-create it. It's not a problem.
