Yep, almost. A deeper stack trace would have been useful (use the 'bt'
command). However, this is already very useful. I'll commit a symptomatic
patch shortly.
Here's the full one:
#0  init_x11_font (font=0x8138968) at font.c:534

OK. You must have a font able to match the following XLFD:

Curiously, the "fixed" last resort font did was not loaded; I don't know

I'm committing the patch which is appended here (font.diff)

I'm a little reluctant to make call this worthy of a "brown bag" release;
the FreeType build compile is probably due to missing -devel packages. I
don't want to investigate more on code which will probably be scrapped in
