I had this the other day. The cause is /usr/X11R6/lib/libfontconfig is
being used instead of pkg/lib version. I patched the link in X11R6/lib
and it all works fine. You should see an error about missing fonts when
the window manager starts.
/usr/X11R6/lib/libfontconfig.so.1 -> /usr/pkg/lib/libfontconfig.so.1
only change this one as your xterm (amongst other things) will depend on
the X11R6/lib version.
don't know what the correct fix is but this worked for me.
