This is really a FreeBSD library. The linux one should be at
"/usr/compat/linux/usr/lib/" and thus may be
displayed as "/usr/lib/".

This may help to find out if you have the needed file:
% ls -l /usr/compat/linux/usr/lib/*

If you have this file than there is two possibilities:
. either your app needs a new libfontconfig (with new API, 2.6 kernel)
  then you may try to use linux_base-f7 (has some known issues for
. or you may have some non-default environment (see /usr/ports/UPDATING
  for more info on this) which prevents from finding this library
  before a FreeBSD one -- try to remove non-default environment.

Is this linux application from ports collection?
