Feedback is even more appreciated because it is under
development :-)

I don't see how this is possible. $(prefix) is not valid
shell syntax and doesn't occur anywhere in etc. The only
way I can see this happening is if you configured

 ./configure --sysconfdir="$(prefix)/etc".

Can you put a call to FcPatternPrint (xfont->font_pattern) into 
pango/pangoxft.c-font.c:pango_xft_font_get_font() and see
what pattern is failing?

Odd. It will never get out of pango_xft_font_get_font() unless
it can successfully load *some* font.
