The update to fontconf seems to have changed the <dir> segments in 
/etc/fonts/fonts.conf to miss out some of the font directories.  In the case 
here I would suspect /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts (which contains the 
subdirectory TrueType).  As a result the font matching algorithmn is not 
considering these fonts.

You can put this dir in /etc/fonts/local.conf and run fc-cache -f -v (as root) 
to fix it.

Does this mean you have added the <dir> I suggested above?  Or do you mean 
adding this (which makes konsole actually use the console font)
