Hi, Dmitry,
For your backport,  I think jdk8u also need to backport this one.

If users specify –with-fontconfig, buildscript is supposed to use ‘FONTCONFIG_CFLAGS’ to discover the header file fontconfig/fontconfig.h.  If you ignore FONTCONFIG_CFLAGS,  it will fall back to pick up from /usr/include. It’s fine by almost Linux distros.  We(Amazon) put 3rd libraries in non-standard location.  That why we have this problem.
