No, you were quite clear but my answer was too terse to be useful.

I think it is related.

Lyx 1.3 compiles and installs from ports just fine and displays
formulae in the working window beautifully.

You may indeed have missing fonts.  I would presume that the
installation went wrong somehow.  The fact that you "had to
compile qt-3.1.1_4 and kde 3.1" would seem to confirm this, as
neither are required dependencies.  At what stage did you cvsup?
