[PATCH fonts-util 1/2] Never run fc-cache if cross-compiling

Since the cache files produced by fc-cache are arch-dependent, there is
no point in running fc-cache if cross-compiling

So, even if we aren't using a DESTDIR, but are installing directly into
(a hopefully non-default) prefix, don't run fc-cache when cross-compiling

(Particularly, this avoids running fc-cache when cross-compiling following
the instructions at [1])
