[tlbuild] xetex problem on OpenSolaris

  Today I discovered that xetex does not run on the latest version of
OpenSolaris. I have recompiled the
whole tree but the problem persists. In particular, when I try to process a
simple file I get the following error:

(./test.aux)kpathsea: Invalid fontname `Minion Pro', contains ' '

! Font \zf at basefont="Minion Pro" at 10.0pt not loadable: Metric (TFM) file
or installed font not found.
\zf at fontspec ...ntname \zf at suffix " at \f at size pt
                                                  \unless \ifzf at icu \zf at set
l.5 ...ping=tex-text,Ligatures=Common]{Minion Pro}

I am almost sure that this is fontconfig related bug/issue whatever but I do
not know a workaround.
I think it would be a good idea to solve this problem or else the binaries
for Solaris x86 will be useless
under OpenSolaris.
