I've just tried a new build of fontconfig and it finished without error.
I suspect that you have a native package installed that I don't which
alters the behaviour of configure (ie, its absence on my machine makes
it skip the area you're having problems with).
Your best bet might be to configure with --disable-docs if you don't
mind not having the documentation. You would add this to AB_CONFLAGS
in setvars.
