A reply was posted on dev on this...I believe the OP has seen it.
Anyway, just for the archives, this is related to not setting up the
font dirs correctly.  See the X Components page in BLFS.  In my case, it
was incorrect permissions...fonts must be world readable, but the error
is similar if you do not complete the X fonts setup.
