Make dependencies to fontconfig and freetype optional and explicit.

Added meson features for explicitly enabling or disabling the dependencies freetype and fontconfig such that they won't be used even if present on the system.
The meson option use_fontconfig was changed to fontconfig with these possible values:
* 'enabled' (equivalent to old use_fontconfig=true)
* 'auto' (equivalent to old use_fontconfig=false)
* 'disabled' (equivalent to old use_fontconfig=false AND report an error if fontconfig is required on this system).
