Check in your X11 font directories. Are the fonts compressed or gzipped
(*.Z or *.gz)? Depending on the vintage of your server, it may be
expecting *.Z fonts. (XFree < 3.3 and commercial ones earlier than
August of this year or so.) You can work around by ungzipping them and
then compressing them if this is your problem.
Else I'd suspect a misconfigured fontserver if you'r using one of those.
