Hmm, glib ensures that g_get_prgname() returns something as long as applications uses GOption? IIUC it is different thing between glib and fontconfig. of course that would be a good idea that it works without GOption though. anyway, there may be the case in current implementation of fontconfig that FcGetPrgname() returns NULL. implementing some fallbacks as much as possible isn't a bad idea IMHO.

You are of course right.  Akira, do we something like Mesa has in fontconfig?
 In glib (if anyone's interested making that happen...)?
