When in a "conversation" window, clicking on the "Font Face" button
causes gaim-0.70 to spew the following to stderr:
** (gaim:199): WARNING **: Couldn't load font "fixed Medium Semi-Condensed
0" falling back to "Sans Medium Semi-Condensed 0"
** (gaim:199): WARNING **: Couldn't load font "Sans Medium Semi-Condensed
0" falling back to "Sans 0"
** (gaim:199): WARNING **: All font failbacks failed!!!!
...at which point the program exits. Googling this error message points
to an improperly configured freetype2 library or fontconfig configuration.

system: fc-list spits out 30 a number of fonts, although none that start
with "Sans" proper.
This is a brand new system, so unfortunately I'm unsure if previous
versions of GAIM have worked properly.
System: FreeBSD 4.8-RELEASE + latest security patches
XFree86 4.3.0 with all stock fonts

experiencing the same problem with this version of GAIM, I'd really
