Another change (maybe already between rc4 and rc5) seems to be that 
fonts.conf has migrated to yet another place, namely to 
/usr/X11/etc/fonts/. This will trip up those programs that have just 
learned that it migrated from /usr/X11/lib/X11/fonts/ to 
/usr/X11/lib/X11/fontconfig/. Some questions:

Why this competition between /usr/X11/etc/fonts/ and 
/usr/X11/lib/X11/fontconfig/? Both come with conf.avail and conf.d 

Is the directory structure used by fontconfig documented somewhere? man 
fonts-conf still talks about /etc/fonts.conf, which has disappeared 
years ago. I haven't found man pages talking about conf.avail/ and conf.d/.

Is this going to settle down?
