     Ran into the same thing yesterday. 
     I found that XF 4.1 now likes it's fonts in
/etc/X11/fonts/ and not /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/ so
I'd change that in /usr/X11/XF86config-4 but it didn't
alleviate it.
     The magic bullet for me (YMMV) was to restart
xfs, so "Careful w/ that ax, Eugene" .
