[MPlayer-dev-eng] Documentation of option '-fontconfig'

The documentation seems wrong.

It says "By default fontconfig is used for libass-rendered subtitles and
not used for OSD. With -fontconfig it is used for both libass and OSD".

Actually it seems to be used for both libass and OSD, because it's the
default if CONFIG_FONTCONFIG, or am I missing something?

Shouldn't it say:

  Enables the usage of fontconfig managed fonts. (default)
  NOTE: It is used for libass and OSD/subtitles. With -nofontconfig it is not
  used at all, i.e. only then -font and -subfont will work with a given path
  to font.
