 I would appreciate some assistance. I'm trying to get gimp-1.3.11
 up and running. When I start gimp-1.3 I get:

No fonts found; this probably means that the fontconfig
library is not correctly configured. You may need to
edit the fonts.conf configuration file. More information
about fontconfig can be found in the fontconfig(3) manual
page and on http://fontconfig.org

 I have installed fcpackage.2_1 from sources. The file
 /etc/fonts/font.conf has 

<!-- Font directory list configured on Tue Apr  1 12:15:16 BRT 2003 -->


 Those directories exist and have fonts.
 What am I missing ? Perhaps this is a gimp issue ?
 Any help is welcome.
