Staszek wants to build all binaries except xetex on his old machine
and asked me to adapt the build script so that files are installed
where he wants to have them.  He has no time to do it himself.

When I run configure --without-xetex I still get:

 checking for fontconfig header files... yes
 checking for FcInit in -lfontconfig... (cached) yes
 checking for Mac OS X ApplicationServices framework... no
 configure: tetex build enabled, LIBS now: -lkpathsea -lm  -lfontconfig

What will happen if the fontconfig headers are not found?  Will
-lfontconfig be omitted then?  I assume that an old machine is slow
and I don't want that Staszek runs into trouble.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
