I am having trouble trying to start the gnumail -port, which I compiled
from a port-tree from 2 week past. I was wondering if I could get help
from here. I am running FreeBSD-5.1-release/i386.
The program starts with a dialog box which has two buttons, but there
isn't any text in them. In the titlebar there reads: critical.
In xterm, from where I start the program, I get:

2004-01-03 18:11:37.989
GNUMail[78702] No font
cache available - building new one - this may take several seconds (or
minutes on a slow machine with lots of fonts)
2004-01-03 18:11:37.990 GNUMail[78702] Running

and loads of:

2004-01-03 18:14:36.668 GNUMail[78702] XGFont: selected font: Fixed at
12.000000 ((nil)) is not available.
2004-01-03 18:14:36.668 GNUMail[78702] DPS (xgps): no font set
/usr/local/GNUstep/Local/Applications/ Uncaught
exception NSInvalidArgumentException, reason: Tried to add nil value to

and when I try to run 'font_cacher', I get:

X Error of failed request:  BadValue (integer parameter out of range for
  Major opcode of failed request:  45 (X_OpenFont)
  Value in failed request:  0x2a015f6
  Serial number of failed request:  23054
  Current serial number in output stream:  23055

from here on, I do not know how to proceed. Help appreciated.
