A few days ago, I ran Setup to update my currently installed package, including my git packages.  Since then, whenever I run git gui, I get the following error:

You don't have any Fontconfig-controlled fonts installed on your system.
On mine, the default seems to be dejavu-fonts, so try installing that,
although xorg-x11-fonts-Type1 might work as well.

The dependency chain is git-gui -> gitk -> font-adobe-dpi75

It doesn't look like the fonts in xorg-x11-fonts-Type1 are available to fontconfig, so I've changed the dependency of gitk to dejavu-fonts on sourceware.


You might wish to update your local setup.hint and/or select a better default.
