What a shame! It seems to me that back-xlib was implemented by someone who
might be ignorant of what fontconfig is for.

 I think it's because GNUstep has its own defaults (NSFont, NSBoldFont).
So back-xlib does not really use fontconfig (fonts.conf) to do font substitute.
 By the way, can fontconfig really do the font substitute ?
 If so, it is a good way to use it to implement the font substitue.

Could you tell me it more specifically? What's your idea on that?

Just add a new session in LanguageSetup.gsdoc, which now only contains back-art.

 Ask user to install freetype and fontconfig and use back-xlib.
 Have encoding and locale correctly set.
Use font panel in Ink.app to check the available fonts and specify them in GNUstep defaults.
 That's it. Very simple.
