I was unable to build Emacs 27.2 on a system with some old version
(2.5.0) of fontconfig without applying the following patch:

diff -u a/emacs-27.2/src/xftfont.c b/emacs-27.2/src/xftfont.c

The system on which the bug was discovered runs Fedora Core 9, but it
should be reproducible by building Emacs with Xft on a system with
fontconfig older than 2.6.0 (and possibly newer -- I am not sure on
that).

In GNU Emacs 27.2 (build 1, powerpc-unknown-linux-gnu, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll bars)
