Building libXfont-1.4.x against fontsproto 2.1.3 causes clang
complaints of:

patcache.c:130:1: error: conflicting types for 'CacheFontPattern'
CacheFontPattern (FontPatternCachePtr cache,
patcache.c:176:1: error: conflicting types for 'FindCachedFontPattern'
FindCachedFontPattern (FontPatternCachePtr cache,

due to the constification of arguments not matching.
