>From rpmlint POV, I think a generic XML well-formedness/validation check would
be a better approach than doing this just for fontconfig files.  I've filed an
upstream RFE about this: http://rpmlint.zarb.org/cgi-bin/trac.cgi/ticket/168

In the meantime (and even if/when implemented in rpmlint), I suggest font
packages could add a %check section and validate their XML files in it - it
should be easy for them to do it using xmllint even if the needed DTD is not
catalogued (obviously as long as it is available somewhere locally).
