We've encountered a problem with the default international fontset:

;; Create standard fontset from 16 dots fonts which are the most widely
;; installed fonts.  Fonts for Chinese-GB, Korean, and Chinese-CNS are
;; specified here because FAMILY of those fonts are not "fixed" in
;; many cases.
(defvar standard-fontset-spec
  (purecopy "-*-fixed-medium-r-normal-*-16-*-*-*-*-*-fontset-standard,

It looks to me like 16 dots fonts are far from being widely installed
fonts: on my computer, xfontsel -*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-* shows 12901
fonts, while xfontsel -*-*-*-*-*-*-16-*-*-*-*-*-*-* shows only 358
fonts. And on some computers, there are simply _no_
-*-fixed-medium-r-normal-*-16-*-*-*-*-*-*-* fonts.

I'd strongly suggest to switch to 14, 18, or 20 dots font instead.
