bug#1646: 23.0.60; xim problom

I recently encountered this problem, too. After some digging, I believe
the problem is missing fontset caused by recent xorg-xserver update.

If you are using xorg-xserver 1.6.0 RC version, then you are likely to
be hit by the same problem. According to the discussions[1], you can
either rebuild xserver with --disable-builtin-fonts or apply this
patch[2] and rebuild.

Although this is not actually an emacs bug, I would suggest that emacs
should be more verbose if it failed to initialize XIM.
