- To get condensed fonts to work, you'll need to compile Pango
  *after* installing a devel snapshot of fontconfig.

- Fonts with the "adobe symbol" (symbol) or "adobe custom" encodings
  (dingbats) are supposed to work, and have worked in my experience.

  I'd suggest diving in and debugging what is going on.
