 you'll be looking for the first "major" obvious difference.  "the
font is missing" is f****g useless: you already know that.  it will be
something like a directory name, or a .so missing, or a .so loaded
from a *different directory* or... a config file that is missing or...
basically something right at the start.

 by the time you get to "the fonts are not loaded"... well... you
already know that, so you're clearly *not* looking for that...

 ... *UNLESS*....

 the locations where each system is *looking* for the fonts is
different.  *that* is something you will want to know.

track and *interpret* the differences... don't just go "errr there are
differences".  work backwards for what the *important* differences
