Check /etc/fonts/fonts.conf. It's an XML file and should be well-formed, 
  which means that all opened tags should have the same closing tag 
(just like html: <p> and </p>). Try "vim /etc/fonts/font.conf +21" and 
type ":set syntax=xml", this should help you see the mistake.
Also try replacing that file with the working default file.
