bug#8030: configure.in clears FONTCONFIG_CFLAGS and FONTCONFIG_LIBS

It seems to me that bugs #7936 and #8030 are the same, so they should
probably be merged.

Moreover, AFAICS the root of the problem is that configure.in (in Emacs
23.2 and emacs-23) inadvertently clears FONTCONFIG_LIBS, so that
'-lfontconfig' is not passed to the linker.  This has been fixed by
Miles on the trunk in revision 102932:

  configure.in: Don't zero-out FONTCONFIG_CFLAGS and FONTCONFIG_LIBS
  when building with XFT (doing so is incorrect, as Emacs directly uses
  fontconfig, and breaks building when using a strict linker).

This bug causes Emacs to FTBFS on GNU/Linux as well with a strict
linker when configured "--with-x-toolkit=lucid", see
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=614823.  I can confirm
that Miles' change fixes that problem.

Any chance to get this fix into Emacs 23.3?
