Firstly, your test cases are wrong! The alltt environment changes some  
behaviour significantly. The "minimal" class is better suited for  
proving that a font file or such is faulty.

Libfontconfig does not read any ".config" files. You can prove this by  
running on the command line

	fc-list : file | grep config

You can also check which DefaVu font files actually are found by XeTeX:

	fc-list : family file style | grep DejaVu



To most people solutions mean finding the answers. But to chemists  
are things that are still all mixed up.
