FreeBSD Port: xmbmon-205_5

I just installed a minimal freebsd 6.0 (base + manpages only)
and then compiled tightvnc and xmbmon (WITHOUT_SMB=YES).

When starting xmbmon in a vnc-client, it refuses to work:

Can't find font: -adobe-helvetica-bold-r-*-*-10-*-*-*-*-*-*-*

The font actually does not exist on my system.

This diff helped me work around the error:

Hope this helps,
