with RHEL 5, Red Hat switched their version scheme from a single number (i.e. RHEL 4) to a <major>.<minor> (i.e. RHEL 5.6). This causes problems because FontConfiguration will expect a different fontconfig file for each update of RHEL.
The solution is to first search for a fontconfig file based on the <major>.<minor> version number and if we don't find that, fall back to a file based on just the major file number. That way we can have a ���default��� fontconfig for the major release, and add an update specific file if there is a need to override the behavior.
For example, on a Solaris 10 machine (Sun OS 5.10) , it currently would look for the following files in order :
We want it to also look for a fontconfig file with a name based off of the major version alone:
