The script I sent is very minimal. You probably need to add
/home/$USER/.fonts to the fontpath yourself.

You might want to make a bit of a change:

#! /bin/sh
exec xinit ~/.vnc-xinitrc -- /usr/bin/X11/Xvnc :1 -rfbport 5900

xset +fp ~/.fonts  ##MARK##
exec pekwm

This may still apply in the vncstartup case; you'd need to add the
marked line to ~/.vnc/xstartup or wherever rather than the
made-up-for-the occasion ~/.vnc-xinitrc, though.

        ln -sf /dev/full /var/mail/$USER
