Yes.  I had  solved this problem before.  Emacs21  could start up.  It
just failed to create the tool-tip popups and new frames.

But why  does it default to "fontset-16"  instead of "fontset-startup"
or  "fontset-standard"?  (And I  already had  a "fontset-18".   I just
changed the  name to "fontset-16" and  it worked even  though the font
spec  still says 18-point  fonts.)  Is  this configurable  in ~/.emacs
(without having to add one statement for EVERY package)?

In my  case, "fontset-startup" is  smaller than "fontset-16"  (which I
want to be the  name of what it says: 16-point fonts).   And I find it
ridiculous that  the tool-tip text and  the text in  the ediff control
panel are bigger than the text in my main working window.
