Is there any way to *not* use/disable the {localstatedir}/fontconfig

We use AFS at Stanford, and I do not want this created or used at all.  I
tried making this be /var/cache/fontconfig, but this gives me permission
denied errors on make install, and in any case, I want to make sure that
fontconfig never tries to use whatever directory I set it to.

Also, the hardcoding of "cache" in the pkgconfigdir bit seems somewhat broken. I'd expect a configure option to set the location (IF it is desired). I'll note that /var/cache is only writeable by root, for example, on Debian boxes.
