Sorry, it's not; xdvipdfmx gets configured differently depending on  
the availability of fontconfig headers. (And without fontconfig, it  
won't actually build successfully [except on Mac OS X]).

I should make the configure phase halt with an error in this case,  
rather than proceed to configure something that won't build! Some  
day, when time permits....
