[Fontconfig] Problems going from RH8 to RH9

Yesterday, I upgraded from Red Hat Linux 8.0 to Red Hat Linux 9.0. Things
went relatively smoothly until a reboot of the machine resulted in an
inability of the X server to load. Initially this seemed to be the result of
incorrect monitor parameters.  After I corrected those settings, I still
have a problem.

I now get an error message that states, "No fonts found; this probably means
that the fontconfig library is not correctly configured. I would add that I
have /etc/fonts/fonts.conf; I lack a /etc/fonts/local.conf. Would I solve my
problem by copying the fonts path to local conf, i.e. chkfontpath -l >
local.conf, then edit local.conf so that it conforms to the XML format
illustrated by fonts.conf?

Thanks in advance for consideration of my request.

Best regards,
