     Support compiling without fontconfig

     Adds a new, fake, fontconfig font backend.  Fontconfig can be disabled
     using --disable-fc, in which case the toy text API wont find fonts and
     the internal font will always be used.

     Also defines the feature macro CAIRO_HAS_FC_FONT.  The two fontconfig-
     specific functions in cairo-ft.h depend on that macro now.
