I have a brand new in-tree xorg setup from last night. I extracted xetc.tgz
and ran fc-cache -r. Many things work, but pkgsrc/wm/qvwm does not:

It seems to do a call like:

  fsDefault = XCreateFontSet(display, DEFAULT_FONT, &miss, &nMiss, &def);

where DEFAULT_FONT is -*-*-medium-r-normal-*-14-*-*-*-*-*-*-* and this
causes libX to say:

Warning: locale not supported by Xlib, locale set to C
Warning: X locale modifiers not supported, using default
Warning: Unable to load any usable fontset

and return a NULL fontset (while xfontsel says 324 names would match, and
fc-list finds 74 hits).

I have no LC_*, LANG or whatever related env settings. Setting LC_ALL to a
valid locale (like de_DE.ISO8859-15) does not help.


Build pkgsrc/wm/qvwm and try to run it with in-tree xorg.
