setup crashes trying to install xorg-x11-fnts

Setup is crashing for me (Windows "unexpected error" window) when I try
to reinstall xorg-x11-fnts.
Why would I try that? Well, I was upgrading a computer and wanted to
install some experimental packages. So, I clicked on Exp. I didn't want
to install the X experimental packages. Rather than clicking on the
version number for each package to toggle to "Keep" (my normal
procedure), I got lazy and just unchecked the "Bin" checkbox for these
To my surprise, it uninstalled those packages (even though cycling away
from Partial and back didn't show any activity for those packages).
After this happened, I reran setup to reinstall those packages. All the
X packages reinstalled successfully except xorg-x11-fnts.
I thought something was messed up on that machine, but I just tried
reinstalling xorg-x11-fnts on a different machine and setup crashed
Any ideas how to fix this? Or, is there any way I can manually reinstall
xorg-x11-fnts so I have a working X11 installation again?
