I tested environment:

and tea-14.2.4 http://sourceforge.net/projects/tea-editor

Although I'm still using legacy fontconfig-2.2.4,
I could display text with BDF-only environment.

See attached fonts.cache-1 of me. fc-list returns following result:
	$ fc-list -v
	Fixed:style=Bold SemiCondensed

The fontmenu of tea shows attached screenshot. I guess Fixed is
only real entry and Monospace, Sans, Serif might be synthesized
entries which is aliased to Fixed (In fact, Monospace/Sans/Serif
shows same glyph with Fixed). Anyway, as you can see, texts are
shown with installed BDF fonts.
