Comment 2 Josef Ridky 2019-08-27 13:09:23 UTC
The issue is caused by fontconfig package due of following commit [1].

Based on fontconfig documentation [2]:
If 'complain' is FcFalse, no warning will be displayed if 'file' does not exist.
Returns FcFalse if some error occurred while loading the file, either a parse error, semantic error or allocation failure. Otherwise returns FcTrue. 

Now, when 'file' is missing, FcFalse is returned instead of FcTrue and due of it, GIMP don't parse any font.conf file in the system.

Assigning this issue to fontconfig package.
