Pango knows what modules to load by reading an index file - it will
look for this in $(sysconfdir)/pango/pango.modules.  (It will also
look home directory location, forget the exact file.)

Running pango-querymodules without any arguments queries all modules
in the default Pango modules path and outputs an appropriate file. You
can configure the module path by editing your ~/.pangorc.

If you just copy the makefile rules for an existing file, everything
should work on 'make install'.
