Sorry about that, but I don't find this MXE stuff very clear.  Why is a
patch like "mingw-hdf5-1.patch" not filed under "gcc-hdf5-1.patch" since
the compiler is gcc?  Of course, then there would be the problem of
distinguishing when you were trying to apply a patch to the gcc module
versus using gcc as the compiler for a specific module.

The patch is applicable to all cross-compiling situations so I renamed the
file to just fontconfig-1.patch.  Unfortunately, I can't push it to the
repository just now because of the DNS issue, but as soon as that is
cleared I'll complete the changeset.
