Which font it needs. Why it does not use the default if the
given font is not available? This seems to be a bad programming
issue in freeciv, then an X-server issue. A good X/MOTIF application
should never crash, if needed font is not available, instead it should
return warning then use whatever "default font" on X-server is available.
