#2448: Fontconfig error with cairo on Windows

 With selected cairo driver, d.* commands don't render any labels and you
 get an error:

 Fontconfig error: Cannot load default config file

 GRASS installation seems to be fine. This error appears only on some
 Windows 7/8 computers. After switching to png driver, text labels are
 visible again. I hoped that the recent fix in installer (r62107) could
 help this and indeed, one user stopped having this problem, but on a
 different computer with fresh version, the problem persists.
