            Bug ID: 258372
           Summary: x11-fonts/fontconfig: cannot install as user (into
                    non-default prefix)
           Product: Ports & Packages
           Version: Latest
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Only Me
          Priority: ---
         Component: Individual Port(s)
          Assignee: desktop@FreeBSD.org

x11-fonts/fontconfig/pkg-plist has the following entry

  @dir /var/db/fontconfig

This breaks installing into a non-default prefix as a regular user:

Installing fontconfig-2.13.94_1,1...
pkg: Fail to create /var/db/fontconfig:Permission denied
ldconfig: mkstemp(/var/run/ld-elf.so.hints.zLG4s8): Permission denied
ldconfig: mkstemp(/var/run/ld-elf32.so.hints.dOlnQp): Permission denied
Running fc-cache to build fontconfig cache...
/bin/sh: fc-cache: not found
*** Error code 1

When I remove that line things appear fine for my purposes (testing of
ports), though I am not saying this is the general fix.
