There should be a big peformance boost with two key changes. These will reduce application startup times.

DT_GNU_HASH which makes a huge difference with with speeding up linking.

Fontconfig 2.4 which was a real bottleneck for GUI applications. I done some tests with valgrind and kcachegrind and found that fontconfig accounted for about half the startup time.
