Installed latest gnome, fontconfig, pango, X 4.3, cvsup src-all,
ports. gnome-session will no longer start due to fontconfig
problems. However, I performed a truss of gnome-session and I
can clearly see fontconfig reading all of the font-cache-1 files
in the system.
How-To-Repeat: Install X4.3 from ports.
Install Gnome2 from ports.
Watch as gnome-session refuses to start.

It works just fine for me on two RC machines. Problems with fontconfig not
finding ports should have been resolved with pango 1.2.1_2. Try running
fc-cache -f -v. If that doesn't work, send me the output of the previous
In the future, it would be helpful to get a little more info (like errors,
truss output, etc.) to aid in troubleshooting.
I can send truss output.
There is absolutely no problem with fontconfig. I re-install it and
pango and everything else I can think of. I run fc-cache -f -v multiple
times. I manually verify the font-cache-1 files.
The truss output clearly shows *something* opening and reading every
single one of the font-cache files, so your blithe remarks about *it
works for me" are completely useless and do nothing to solve the very
real problems that I experience day in and day out.
You have done nothing to help solve the multiple fontconfig problems
appearing in the field. fc-cache is not the solution.
This has been fixed by fontconfig 2.1.92.
