Dr. Nagler & Company GmbH
System: NetBSD test-s0 5.1.2 NetBSD 5.1.2 (NSW-WS) #1: Thu Dec 6 12:56:04 CET 
2012 wgstuken@test-s0:/usr/src/sys/arch/amd64/compile/NSW-WS amd64
Architecture: x86_64
Machine: amd64
        For unknown reasons there are only font-paths to /usr/pkg/...
        in the file /usr/pkg/etc/fontconfig/fonts.conf.
        But this file seems to be examined by (I think it is libpango in) 
        to get the correct fonts.
        The "default" fonts in /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts are not found.
        Additional manual intervention is required to make it usable.
        Relevant contents of /usr/pkg/etc/fontconfig/fonts.conf:
<!-- Font directory list -->


        This was not nessesary in the past where firefox will come up without 
        modification of /usr/pkg/etc/fontconfig/fonts.conf.
        Contents on netbsd-4.0 with pkgsrc from 2008:
<!-- Font directory list -->


        Setup a fresh 5.1.2 and install firefox from pkgsrc-2012Q2.
        firefox will dump core during startup after libpango complaining
        about not found fonts.
        Output in terminal:
(xulrunner-bin:17669): Pango-WARNING **: failed to choose a font, expect ugly 
output. engine-type='PangoRenderFc', script='common'
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

        Add /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts as path to fonts.conf file during 
        (or the standard font path of the underlying system ...)
        After adding this path, firefox will start normaly.
