[Pkg-fonts-devel] How to get fontconfig to use fonts.conf files stored in /etc/fonts/conf.d

I maintain ttf-indic-fonts for the Debian Indic team (
http://debian-in.alioth.debian.org). A major problem I've been facing is to
make sure that fonts from ttf-indic-fonts is used in preference to
ttf-freefonts for Indian languages. I personally am using custom .fonts.conf
files. One obvious solution would be to put such fonts.conf files in
/etc/fonts/conf.d directory, but not being very familiar with fontconfig, I
wonder if there is any specific way to make fontconfig use a particular
fonts.conf for a particular locale ? Or will just putting in the appropriate
config files in /etc/fonts/conf.d work? Can other font packagers please
guide me on this problem ?
