 Thank you Keith.
 But running fc-cache is taking 100% CPU and simply never stops in
 my PIII-1Ghz. I quit after 10 minutes. Did I quit too soon ?

 In fact, I manage to make fonts work by editing manually /etc/fonts/font.conf,
 where I added the absolute path to directories containing  font files.
 I thought I could specify a base path, and fontconfig would recurse down
 that path seeking the effective files.

 Since my fontconfig.tex file is incomplete (from fcpackage.2_1),
 what should be the expected behaviour ? Should I compile Xrender and
 Xft1 ? If so, what would be the suggested procedure.
