fix fontconfig 2.9.0 crashing secondlife viewers


Some of you might remember that I wrote about an incompatibility between those software packages when fontconfig was updated in -current. I am confident that the viewers will be adapted at some point, but in the meantime I have developed a patch. BAsically you need to rebuild the fontconfig package with a modified Slackbuild that applies the following patch prior to compilation:

Code:

 }

 #include "fcaliastail.h"
When using multilibs, it is the 32bit library that needs attention.
