I don't know how the variables work, but GNU make is definitely a  
requirement (also for the ICU libs, I believe). Personally, I'd  
probably just make a symlink.

I think it should work to use --with-fontconfig=/usr/X11R6 in this  
case, as the scripts will then expect to find include/ and lib/  
directories under this (and the fontconfig headers are always placed  
in a further fontconfig/ dir, so that source files typically say  
"#include <fontconfig/fontconfig.h>".
