 if you have one working system and one not, install strace and run
this on both systems:

$ strace -o log.txt -ff tdecmshell fonts

you can then do a "diff" on the two sets of log.txt.NNNNN files and it
should be blindingly obvious where one file significantly differs from
the other.  it's going to be awkward because the files will be pretty
different: you could instead put the two files side-by-side in xterms
of identical height and do page-down page-down page-down instead.
