xterm 327-1 to 329-1 needs font dependency

On an upgrade of xterm from 327-1 to 329-1 starting an xterm now complains:
	$ xterm
	/usr/bin/xterm: cannot load font "-Misc-Fixed-bold-R-*-*-10-100-75-75-C-60-ISO8859-1"
	/usr/bin/xterm: cannot load font "-Misc-Fixed-medium-R-*-*-10-100-75-75-C-120-ISO10646-1"
	/usr/bin/xterm: cannot load font "-Misc-Fixed-bold-R-*-*-10-100-75-75-C-120-ISO10646-1"

When I downgrade to 327-1 these messages do not show, so I assume the
latest version requires specific fonts.

I installed all the X11 fonts which were described as "core font"
(surprisingly a reinstall of "xinit" did not install these),
but still I get the above messages. However I assume xterm falls back on
some other font, as everything displays ok (as far as I checked).

Q1. Can someone point me at which font I need to install to not get these
	warnings (I tried a few, but no luck, and there are hundreds to try)?

Q2. Shouldn't these fonts be a dependency of xterm?
