It appears that you have an older version of FreeType2 installed somewhere 
that is getting picked up by your applications.  Old FreeType2 bits would 
fail to load .pcf.gz fonts correctly.

Directories are 'skipped' when they are already up to date, are not 
writable or non-existant.  Use '-f' to force fontconfig to update 
directories which are up to date.
