My guess is that your /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 just got updated and removed some
of your fontpath lines.
I suspect reason your gtk2 apps are fine is because the do not use the built
in font serving capabilities of the xserver but use xft/fontconfig/freetype
to display the fonts.
Take a look at the above config file and see if its dropped some of your font
