I've had similar problems for quite awhile. I find that not all fonts
are invisible, only some (if you get KDE font picker that lists
fonts, some will be blank and some not; if you have a font picker that
displays sample text, the sample is blank for some but not others).
So switching to "good" fonts is a work-around.
I've had various suspicions, particularly about some name changes for
fonts in the qt2 -> qt3 (kde2 -> 3) transition, but I've been unable
to definitively diagnose or solve the problem.
