That would be, before upgrading the fontconfig package or any font package.

The problem is that when doing apt-get upgrade in a common etch installation,
fontconfig gets upgraded but libfontconfig1 and fontconfig-config don't. So
that all fonts will fail at config stage. So it would be wise to upgrade
fontconfig libfontconfig1 fontconfig-config before issuing an apt-get upgrade.

sees the "go to," rather than the destination, as harmful.
