The first part sounds like something is wrong with the build environment.
#include </usr/local/include/.../fontconfig.h> is just broken somewhere. I
suspect this is part of the pain that Travis Griggs was trying to communicate
to us about building upon Mac OS/X where every major component seems to include
different versions of the same headers. Hopefully this has been improved with
the build system revamp... If 1.8.x is still problematic, please tell us on the
mailing list (where more casual users and certainly more Mac users) and
hopefully we can improve the build instructions/system for Mac OS/X.

The second aspect is due to the long standing issue of discrepancies between
the different font backends. So if you compile with xlib enabled, the default
font backend will be FreeType and without you'll default to CoreFont. And it
seems that for the failing tests those reference images have been generated
using FreeType which differs in its rasterisation/choice of font to CoreFont.

The test suite is due to undergo an overhaul through the 1.9 development cycle
and resolving the font discrepancy is one of the planned tasks.
