About those bolds.. It seems using the ":bold" suffix isn't reliable, 
i.e. at least here using "monospace:bold" and calling FcFontSort returns 
non-monospace fonts ahead of the wanted monospace fonts.

Using this it works correctly, though, and the bold monospace font is 
returned first:
FcPatternAddInteger(fc_pattern, FC_WEIGHT, FC_WEIGHT_BOLD)
