Hi Mirosław and Norbert,

the attached fontconfig file fixes this issue for good. It tells 
fontconfig to look for the OpenType fonts in the right directory and 
rejects all the Type 1 variants (just to play safe, the rejects are 
based on both font names without spaces and fontformat being "Type 
1"). It just works, without symlinks, needing to copy or move files 
around or the painfull manual aligning of font names that I tried to 
achieve with my previous fontconfig file.

With the attached file, the OpenType variants of the tex-gyre fonts 
are made available for fontconfig. The Type 1 variants are made 
unavailable for fontconfig, but remain available for the X font system.

Hope that helps,
  - Fabian
