[PATCH] Allow linking in (shared) libfontconfig directy

As it is, OpenJDK tries to dlopen fontconfig (multiple times too), to
avoid a direct link dependency over it. This could be quite slow as the
dynamic linker has to do its job multiple times, but is understandable
for redistributable packages.

Distributions, though, might want to just depend on fontconfig itself
and link it directly. The attached patch allows that through the
DIRECT_LINK_FONTCONFIG=true option at make.
