I still find it unusual that, when building cairo as a single- 
architecture binary for the local architecture only, it says my  
FontConfig has FcFini, but when building cairo as a universal binary,  
it says it doesn't. My FontConfig hasn't changed, of course. It  
either has this function or it does not. The manner in which I'm  
building cairo should not affect that. I think cairo may not be  
detecting this function correctly.
