On the off-chance that this would solve the problem, I have just
downloaded and re-installed both the fontconfig-2.2.1-4 and
fontconfig-devel-2.2.1-4 RPMs.  Just to make sure, I also upgraded atk
and atk-devel, and pango and pango-devel to the most recent RPMs from
rawhide.  Everything installs fine except for the fontconfig package,
which fails in the post-install script:

error: %post(fontconfig-2.2.1-4) scriptlet failed, exit status 127

The scriptlet seems to be a simple fc-cache -f command, which fails with
the following error message:

fc-cache: relocation error: /usr/lib/libfontconfig.so.1: undefined
symbol: FT_Get_BDF_Property

I checked the state of /usr/lib/libfontconfig.so.1, which is a symlink
to /usr/lib/libfontcnfig.so.1.0.4, which hasn't been updated since June.
This makes me think that the fontconfig package isn't really getting
properly installed, or at least not updating the library properly.  

Am I correct in thinking that my shared library isn't getting updated? 
Can someone tell me what the proper version of libfontconfig should be
for fontconfig-2.2.1?  And should I perhaps try to recompile the
fontconfig library from sources and install it manually?  

Baffled in California,
