That's part of the problem that may appear later: if a distribution
changes this file, its location, its format, etc. we will have to have a
huge amount of patches... where the call to fc-list is standard thanks
to the path variable which is supposed to be set accordingly. There is
absolutely no guaranty that it will stay in the same format across the
versions, whereas we can expect some sort of backward compatibility in
Anyway, how should we proceed under windows? Should we scan only
