I confirm that this reproduces with my Solaris 10, sparc,
fontconfig-2.4.2 ( download from sunfreeware.com ).

A quick fix: copy all True Type fonts into /usr/share/fonts and run
fc-cache -fv .
If there are some True Types fonts under, for example
/usr/share/fonts/some_dir, fc-cache -fv will give such error.
