I'm not sure if you are seeing the same problem as the original poster
of this bug report, but I had the same problem you describe: The error
`Fontconfig error: failed reading config file` appearing exactly 5
times. I could reproduce it by running `fc-cache`.
Through the links below, I found it was caused by Debian bugs #854166
and #866052, related to 5 packages: fonts-beng-extra, fonts-deva-extra,
fonts-gujr-extra, fonts-guru-extra and fonts-orya-extra. (In my case,
these fonts got installed as dependencies of tuxtype.)
After manually reorganizing /etc/fonts/conf.avail/ to match the goal
described in #866052, the error messages disappeared.
