Neither of those files should present at the system if you install
linux programs via ports/packages (if they do, please, reproduce it
and file a PR):
. /compat/linux/etc/pango/pango.modules;
. /compat/linux/usr/bin/pango-querymodules;
. /compat/linux/usr/bin/pango-querymodules.

All those files are autocreated by the port/package:
. /compat/linux/usr/bin/pango-querymodules-32;
. /compat/linux/etc/pango/i686-redhat-linux-gnu/pango.modules.

The port system do it for you automatically. Hence, you should
find out how did you manage to get there earlier to not get there
in the future.
