The actual change should be a simple patch against the fontconfig package. I am not sure, though, if this will qualify as a last-minute freeze breaking change? NB: the fontconfig package seeme to be maintained by NMUs most recently, maybe we should kindly ask to adopt it for the pkg-fonts team?
Being new to Debian I certainly am not aware of all the issue around a freeze preceding a release. If I may give a naive opinion, I would hate for this issue to break a release so close to the release date. Would it be better to keep the already somewhat tested installers and fix this in a release update? This goes way beyond my Debian skills so more experienced people will have to make that decision.
