I'm pretty sure that I have the fonts installed correctly, as the old
XWin runs with the new fonts via -fp.  On the other hand, the new XWin
won't find neither the new fonts nor the old.

That doesn't seem to help.

Are there any patches that may not have been applied upstream that I
should know about?  How about Alan or Colin?  This really baffles me,
and I'm not sure how to precede right now.
